Police in Nairobi have arrested a man who allegedly kidnapped and later raped a foreigner in Oloolua Forest in Rongai, Kajiado County.
According to Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Protas Onsongo was arrested in Ngong while trying to flee the city on Saturday afternoon.
"Earlier at around 4:30am, the woman in the company of two other friends left Club 1824, a popular joint along Langata road, after a night of merrymaking.
"At the parking, the three foreigners hailed three motorbikes to drop them at a hotel in the CBD, where they had reserved their rooms," DCI said in a statement.
Instead of heading to the CBD, the motorcyclist sped towards Bomas of Kenya.
"The victim realized that all was not well when she noticed a lot of vegetation that is characteristic of the Ongata Rongai route.
"She tried raising alarm but her efforts were in vain, as the bike sped precariously towards Oloolua forest," DCI stated.
The incident was later reported at Ongata Rongai Police Station.
"The victim was escorted to a medical facility in Ongata Rongai, where the necessary tests and medical procedures were conducted," DCI added.
