Kenyan man assaulted for Peeing In public
Detectives have arrested a man accused of brutally assaulting another with heavy blows and kicks for responding to a call of nature at a public place in Kakamega’s Dharau area, western Kenya.
Jared Otieno, 30, was nabbed on Tuesday after the severe assault on the 24-year-old victim, said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
The victim had taken a leak at a public place, oblivious of a clear warning inscribed on an adjacent wall.
No sooner had the victim finished his business than Otieno emerged and rained blows on his face, totally disfiguring his jaws and leaving him with a black eye.
Efforts by curious onlookers to calm a furious Otieno who had taken the county by-laws into his own hands yielded little results, forcing them to call police officers from Kakamega Police station who arrived immediately.
“As the suspect was ushered into a waiting police land cruiser, the badly injured victim who could not open his mouth due to the extent of his injuries, was rushed to Kakamega General Hospital for specialized medication,” said DCI.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
