Police in Kenya have arrested a 15-year-old class Six girl after she allegedly stabbed her 19-year-old boyfriend to death.
Lang’ata sub county Police commander Gregory Mutiso confirmed the incident in a statement on Wednesday, September 24, 2020.
According to witnesses, the two quarreled after the girl confronted the boyfriend over a conversation with another girl before she stabbed the Form 2 student two times in the chest.
A report by Citizen Digital indicated that the neighbours rushed to the scene after they heard screams from the house only to find the deceased writhing in pain with blood oozing from his body.
Efforts to save the 19-year-old Form Two student were futile as he was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary’s hospital where he was rushed for medication.
The teenage suspect is being held at Langata Police station for interrogation and the body of the deceased was taken to City Mortuary pending an autopsy.
