Police are hunting down a 40-year-old man named Peter Nzinzi Musyoki in Kilia Village, Mukaa, Makueni County.

Musyoki is on the run after he reportedly defiled a minor then going into hiding.

The heartless man waylaid the minor who was on an errand to collect some milk somewhere in the neighbourhood.

He reportedly pounced on the little girl and dragged her to a nearby thicket where he defiled the minor.

To add salt to the wound, the fellow gave the minor Sh15 to keep her mouth shut about the beastly act he had just performed on her.

Musyoki then scrammed onto the thin air as the innocent minor was rushed to Kilungu Level 4 Hospital for immediate treatment.

The minor’s mother, who took her to the hospital was devastated and could not comprehend the ordeal that her daughter had gone through.

The suspect is still at large and the police are appealing to the public to volunteer any information that may lead to his apprehension
