I just kissed her, I did not defile girl in toilet- Suspect in trouble tells court

Mahad Hassan alias Harun in court

A 37-year-old man has been accused of defiling a 12-year-old girl. Mahad Hassan aka Harun was allegedly busted defiling the minor in a toilet on November 10 within Pangani.

Police said Hassan jumped to his defence after he was busted alleging that he was just kissing the girl. Hassan also faces an alternative charge of committing an indecent act with a child by touching her.

Police said Hassan sneaked into a toilet where the minor had gone for a short call at around 10pm. The court heard that Hassan covered the minor’s mouth, tied her hands with a sweater then defiled her.

 The minor’s mother who was in the house became suspicious after her daughter took too long in the toilet.

It was then that she stormed the toilet and found it locked from inside. Her attempts to open the door failed forcing her to call the neighbours.

Police said that Hassan was forcefully smoked out of the toilet. The minor came out half naked and narrated her ordeal in the hands of Hassan, who told neighbours that he was just touching and kissing her and nothing more.

 He was released on Sh300,000 bond. The case will be mentioned on  November 29.
