Police in Rubirizi District are currently investigating a disturbing incident in which a one-year-old child was allegedly sexually assaulted by a fifteen-year-old boy.
Marcial Tumusiime, the spokesperson for the Greater Bushenyi Police, has confirmed this unfortunate incident, which occurred on the 23rd of October, 2023, at approximately 11:30 AM.
The incident reportedly occurred in Kanyambiriri 1 cell, Ndangaro Parish, Rutoto sub-county in Rubirizi District. According to the information available, the victim’s mother had left her child in the care of the teenage suspect while she attended to her household chores. However, she became concerned about the impending rain and decided to retrieve her child.
Upon entering the suspect’s bedroom, she discovered the teenage boy lying on his bed inside a mosquito net without underwear. When she inquired why her child was not wearing underwear, the suspect claimed to have removed it after the child had urinated in it.
Furthermore, the suspect’s trousers were only partially worn, hanging at knee level.
At this point, the mother inspected her child and sadly discovered that her one-year-old had been sexually assaulted.
