There was drama in a village in Kinangop Nyandarua County after a teenager raped a granny in her house but immediately fell asleep after the act.
The 19 year old is fighting for his life after residents of Mutonyora set on him with all manner of weapons leaving him for dead.
Police rescued the suspect who was said to be drunk during the incident and rushed him to Naivasha district hospital in critical conditions.
During the attack, the granny lost three teeth and was left nursing injuries on her neck and she was treated in the district hospital and discharged.
According to a relative Josephine Mwangi, the 70 year old victim was living alone when the 2 am incident occurred.
Mwangi said that the teenager gained entry into the house through the window and found the woman deep asleep.
“He held her by the neck and they struggled for over 30 minutes before the woman gave in after realizing that the suspect would strangle her to death,” she said.
The emotional relative said that soon after the attack, the suspect who was stark naked fell asleep and started snoring.
“The granny waited for some time before crawling out to bed and rushing to a neighbor’s house where she sought help,” said the relative.
Area residents moved to the home where they found the suspect deep asleep and they drugged him from the bed before setting on him with all manner of weapons.
