A woman in Nyeri town on Thursday morning stabbed to death a man who attempted to rape her inside her shop.

According to police report, two burglars broke into the woman’s shop in the wee hours of the morning and hid the stolen items at a nearby bush.

When neighbours raised the alarm, the suspects reportedly fled in different directions.


After the situation calmed down, the woman returned to her shop, but was attacked by one of the suspected burglars who was still hiding in the bush.

A scuffle ensued and the woman stabbed her attacker in the neck. The wounded man attempted to escape but collapsed and died a few metres from the shop.

The stolen items were recovered and the body of the deceased taken to Nyeri County Referral Hospital Mortuary as police launched investigations into the incident.
