MBARARA Police have arrested a teenager on suspicion of having defiled a two-month-old baby at Koranorya trading centre in Kakiika sub-county, Mbarara district.
Akim Byaruhanga, 18, was arrested on September 19. The district Police CID chief, Jackson Tumwine, said Rehema Nakyansi, the victimâ€™s mother, reported Byaruhanga to the Police.
Nakyansi alleges that on September 19 at around 2:00pm, she left the child sleeping inside the house and went to a nearby shop to buy cooking oil. When she returned after 15 minutes, she found the baby crying.
â€œMy cousin Sharif Kashaija told me he found Byaruhanga defiling the baby,â€ Nakyansi said. She said she did not believe it and took the baby to her neighbours, who checked the babyâ€™s private parts and realised that some object had penetrated her.
