Manhunt Launched for Sinazongwe man who sodomised 3-year-old boy

A guy between the ages of 25 and 35 is wanted by Sinazongwe police after he was discovered read-handed molesting a three-year-old boy

The toddler’s auntie spotted Choolwe, whose other name is unknown, in the act on Thursday of last week at around 21:00.

After being apprehended, the culprit fled, prompting authorities to start a manhunt.

Godfrey Chilabi, an assistant police public relations officer, confirmed the tragic incident and stated that since then, authorities had documented a case of sodomy involving a three-year-old kid that took place on March 16 of this year.

“Brief facts of the matter are that the victim was sleeping alone in the house while his auntie aged 29 was visiting in the neighborhood.

When she went back home around 21:00 hours, she found the suspect having carnal knowledge of the child against the order of nature. The suspect ran away immediately and a search by community members was launched.The matter was reported to Police who visited the scene and rushed the victim to Maamba District Hospital where he is receiving treatment,” he said.

Mr Chilabi said preliminary investigations indicate that the suspect is not related to the victim.

“We appeal to members of the public especially in Sinazongwe and surrounding areas who may have information on the whereabout of the suspect to report (him) to any nearest Police Station,” he said.
