Police officer caged for defiling 15-year-old girl in cell

The suspected police officer whose details have not been disclosed was reported to have taken the youngster from the very cell she was in, and asked her to do some cleaning in the OCS Joshua Nyasimu Gatundu station.

However, he took undue advantage and “had carnal knowledge of her against her will after removing her from cells to do some cleaning within the station,” cell authorities told local media.

According to, the said police officer was detained in the same OCS Joshua Nyasimu Gatundu cells, while the victim was taken to the hospital for examination.


It is not yet clear what was the basis of the girl’s detention in the first place.

This is not the first time the Kenyan police has been hit with such a scandal. Reports indicate that about three months ago, a similar incident happened in the country’s Murang’a community where a police officer allegedly defiled a 14-year-old girl inside a Police Station cell.
