An 18-year-old male student who sneaked into a neighboring girls’ secondary school, has been arrested by operatives of Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
The suspect, who is a student of Gatugi Day secondary school in Nyeri county, was arrested while pretending to be a female student at the girls’ school to meet his girlfriend.
He was reportedly dressed in a female uniform and joined a group of girls as they headed to their dormitories. The male student was nabbed after he enquired about the whereabouts of his supposed girlfriend.
The DCI said in a statement that the mission by the teenager to meet his girlfriend was nipped in the bud after the 18-year-old was unmasked by other girls who raised alarm.
Frantic efforts by the restless young man to trace his girlfriend from a crowd of girls walking to their dormitory bore no fruits.
“The girl became suspicious since the voice sounded unfamiliar and husky, prompting her to have a closer look at the person making the inquiry, only for her to realize that the fool with a broad chest and hairy chin was a man dressed in their school uniform.”
The student had stuffed his chest with pieces of clothing, to create a false impression of a female bosom.
“She immediately started screaming prompting a cacophony of screams from the other girls, as they fled to different directions in bewilderment, almost causing a stampede.”
Following the commotion at the school, the school’s guard rushed toward the dormitories and apprehended the suspect as he attempted to escape.
The school’s principal alerted law enforcement officers who rushed to the scene and arrested him.
When questioned, he told officers that he had been invited over by his girlfriend for unspecified business. Three condoms, a mobile phone and a lighter were recovered from him.
The statement added:
“However, three condoms, a mobile phone and a lighter were recovered from him and he was whisked to Othaya police station where he is being processed for the offence of preparation to commit a felony.”
