City cops arrest man who assaulted, gouged out woman’s eyes

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Wednesday arrested a man who has been on the run since 2018 after a horror assault on a woman.

Twenty eight year-old Victor Odhiambo Omanya allegedly assaulted a woman and gouged out her eye during an attack in Kisauni, Mombasa.

He was arrested in his hideout in Kayole, Nairobi County. He is still in custody for questioning.

The victim had last month narrated her ordeal to DCI boss George Kinoti during the launch of a Social Justice Center in Kisauni.

“The matter was brought to the attention of the Director @DCI_Kenya Mr. George Kinoti by the complainant (who spoke with a lot of emotion) while he joined other guests to launch a Social Justice Center in #Kisauni,” the DCI said in a tweet.

The Social Justice Centre was launched last month through the support of  the UK government in collaboration with Haki Afrika Organisation.

During the launch, DPP Noordin Haji promised to protect women’s rights.
