A 40-year-old man was on Friday arraigned before a Kabarnet court after he sneaked into a female police officer’s house in Kabartonjo Police Station in Baringo North during the wee hours of the night.
Vincent Kipruto Kibet alias “Japan” was charged with three counts of stealing, handling of stolen property, and attempted rape against an administration police constable (APC) on April 14, 2021, at 12:50 am.
Kibet who appeared before Kabarnet resident magistrate Viennah Amboko looking while dressed in female clothing denied all the charges.
The court was told that “Japan” was arrested the next day early in the morning at his Kaptere village after local residents positively identified a trouser and a t-shirt he left behind when the female officer screamed for help.
The magistrate granted the accused a cash bail of Sh10,000 or a bond of Sh20,000 with one surety of a similar amount.
The case will come up for hearing on May 18, where six police officers are expected to testify.
