Police at Kawempe with the help of the K9 unit have arrested four suspects in a case of Aggravated Robbery and Rape.

It is alleged that at about 12am on 25th April, two Panga wielding thugs broke into the home of a 23-year-old woman in Kitambuza Zone, Kawempe Division, robbed and sexually assaulted the unnamed victim who was staying alone.  

The victim reported the matter to Police. Officers from Kawempe Police working with K9 introduced Boela a dog which helped track down the suspects for a distance of 250m from the crime scene.

The dog entered a structure that was harbouring four men who were arrested immediately after the victim's identification.

ASP Luke Owoyesigyire Deputy PRO KMP says the victim was able to identify the suspects by the clothes they were wearing during the incident. 

He identified the four suspects include; Katabi Joseph, Sserwada Mike, Musana John who was hiding inside the ceiling board and another one only identified as Musunguzi.

Upon lawful search at their premises, Owoyesigyire says officers recovered knives, Pangas and suspected Narcotic substances. They are currently detained at Kawempe Police station.  

“We have also established through investigations that the thugs gained access to the victim’s home by jumping over the fence, and un bolting her door. The gated houses where she was staying had a security guard but unfortunately the guard claims not to have heard anything. He has also been brought in for questioning,” Owoyesigyire explains.

The victim was robbed of money amounting to 850,000 shillings, a phone and Laptop before the suspects sexually assaulted her. 

The suspects will be arraigned in courts of law as soon as investigations are complete.
