A middle-aged man in Makueni has been arrested after he allegedly attempted to rape his own grandmother.

According to DCI, the 24-year-old man ambushed his 86-year-old grandmother yesterday at around 1 am in her house located in Kalongo sub-location, Makueni County.

“Stephen Mutua Mutala from Kalongo sub-location in Makueni County, attempted to commit the abominable act after breaking into his 86-year-old grandmother’s house and crept into her bed,” DCI said.

It is alleged Mutala grabbed her grandmother by the neck and covered her mouth before attempting to rape her.

“The granny in her sunset years screamed in despair as she fought off her attacker, with all the strength that she could gather,” DCI said.

This frustrated the suspect, who stormed out of the house after hitting her grandmother’s leg with a chair.

Police immediately launched a manhunt and apprehended the suspect, who remains in custody pending arraignment in a court of law.
