POLICE in Kitwe have arrested a 61-year-old man for allegedly defiling a girl aged 13.
Kitwe police chief Fred Mulenga confirmed the arrest of Jordan Chikosa, a carpenter of House Number 1308 in Racecourse Township.
On Saturday, members of the public apprehended the suspect after he allegedly defiled the girl, whom he had enticed to his house where he stays alone.
Mr Mulenga said some members of the public heard someone screaming from the suspect’s house and when they went to check, they found a minor being defiled.
“Chikosa was apprehended by his neighbour who heard the girl screaming from his house. He was found defiling the minor,” he said.
He said the mob attempted to set the suspect ablaze and was only rescued by police who quickly arrived on the scene.
