A jealous husband sexually and physically assaulted his wife, as he applied superglue mixed with sand to seal off her private part.
The man who is currently on the run, attacked his wife on Saturday May 16th, after accusing her of infidelity.
According to the police in Tharaka South Sub-County in Kenya, the suspect first persuaded his wife to move from their Marimanti township home, fearing that he would be arrested after having travelled from Nairobi where there is a lockdown.
On reaching Kathita River, the man who threatened to kill his wife ordered her to undress, after asking her to name the men she slept with while he was away.
It was gathered that when she turned down his request, the man descended on her with blows while threatening to stab her with the knife he was holding.
Tharaka South Police Commander, Kiprop Rutto said the suspect then proceeded to adding pepper, salt and onions in his wife’s private parts using a sharp knife, before applying superglue mixed with sand to ‘seal’ it off. He also applied the same super glue on his wife’s ears and mouth before fleeing from the scene.
The woman managed to walk to Marimanti Police Station where she reported the matter before she was rushed to Marimanti Sub-County Hospital where she is receiving treatment. Mr Rutto added that the suspect is a known criminal in the region who is being sought by the police for various crimes.
