A 32 year doctor is being held at Homa-Bay police station after he allegedly raped a woman who went to seek medical treatment on Monday night at St. Paul’s Mission Hospital in Homa-Bay town.
The medic identified as Laban Otieno Obor was arrested by the police today after the woman whose identity is withheld reported the incident to Homa-Bay police station today.
It is reported that the medic injected the 33 year old woman twice with a drug that has not been established and became unconscious before dragging her into an isolation room within the health facility at around 7 pm in the night of April 27, where he raped her.
The woman who is a mother of four is said to have gone to St. Paul’s Mission Hospital after developing a chest pain and the medic instructed her to be admitted in a separate hospital room for further medical examinations after receiving the first two injections.
Homa-Bay County Police Commander Esther Seroney confirms that the suspect was arrested today at his station of work while undertaking his duties at the Christian based health facility.
Ms Seroney says that the woman collapsed in the hospital a few minutes after losing consciousness due to the two injections before the medic carried her to an isolation room and raped her.
She states that the woman only found herself in the isolation room after regaining consciousness with the suspect sleeping beside her on the same bed at around 2 am on the night of April 27.
The county police boss says that the hospital medical report has confirmed that the patient was raped repeatedly and they will take the suspect to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
