Man tricks a teenager and rapes her in Kasungu


Malawi Police officers in Kasungu are keeping in custody a 21 year-old man for raping a teenager.

Kasungu Deputy Public Relations Officer Harry Namwaza confirmed the arrest to Malawi24.

crime (2)Namwaza said the suspected rapist, Lucius Phiri, was arrested on Friday at Umphawiuwawa village, Traditional Authority Mpomwa in the district.

“The suspect came in this village to look for piecework and due to the good relationship his mother had with the victim’s mother, he was accommodated in the house of the victim’s parents,” he said.

On the day of the rape, the victim went to the bathroom to wash herself and while coming back she met Phiri.

The suspect told the girl that he wanted to initiate her, hence he had to rape her.

Phiri later grabbed the girl and dragged her into the house where he forced himself on her.

After the rapist had finished his evil act, the girl found a chance and screamed for help.

Phiri however got up and started to run away but he was apprehended by community members who later sent him to police.

He hails from Magwalangwa village T/A Wimbe in Kasungu district and he will appear before court soon to answer charges of defilement.

Meanwhile, the victim has been medically examined and the results will be used as evidence in court.
