The man had excused himself to go for a call of nature when the suspect struck.

Detectives based in Bomet County have launched a manhunt for a suspect who sodomised a drunk man after locking him up in his house for over 10 hours.

In an update by DCI on Wednesday, November 23, the bizarre incident occurred in Mosonik village of Kyogong location in Chepalungu when the man who was making merry with his kinsmen at Jumbo club excused himself to go for a call of nature when the suspect struck.

"As the man staggered back to the local, he was accosted by the suspect who instead led him to his house approximately 200 metres away.

"Efforts by the victim to raise alarm as he was led by Silas to his chambers were unsuccessful, as his incoherent screams were drowned by the loud stereo in the pub playing local popular hit song ‘Gloria’ as the rest of the equally inebriated revelers slurred and danced along," part of the statement by DCI read. 

DCI added," The suspect then went against the order of nature and sodomised the helpless 33-year-old victim until late yesterday afternoon, when a passerby came to his rescue after he heard screams coming from the house.

"The victim was rescued and rushed to Longisa county and referral hospital for treatment and the relevant tests conducted, as a manhunt for the suspect who fled from his home was immediately launched."
