Why Sheryl, A Form 3 student Injured Two police Officers
Mystery surrounded Ugunja Sub County in Siaya County when a 19 year old female student at St. peter’s Rambula mixed secondary school beat two armed police officers close to death. Ideally, police officers are known to be arrogant and irrational persons, who cannot allow anyone, especially a lady, to outshine them.
One of the police officers, a constable who happens to be Sheryl’s lover, is still nursing injuries at Sagam Hospital after Sheryl allegedly attacked him following a disagreement on Christmas day. Constable Dennis Mugo, was seriously injured during the fight with his girlfriend.
The suspect attacked the officer with a broken piece of glass. “She cut the victim on his head and upper arm. The victim screamed for help while bleeding profusely from the injury,” reads a police report.
Mugo’s colleague, Corporal Solomon Kipchumba, came in time for his aid but was also attacked by the student who cut him on his lower lip. Kipchumba then rushed to Ugunja Police Station to report the attack. Awino was immediately arrested and detained at Ugunja Police Station as Investigations into the matter started. The officer and the suspect had been living as husband and wife for some time now.
Cause of fight
Investigations have revealed that the form three student wanted to attend a Christmas party with some of her male friends but Mr. Mugo would not allow her.
“He took away her phone and called the man who had invited the lady to the party and asked him to leave his wife alone,” he said.
It was after the phone call that the woman went berserk, breaking household items before reportedly attacking the officer.
“Police officers from Ugunja Police Station rushed to the scene led by the OCS and the injured policemen were taken to Inuka Hospital for treatment,” he said.
Corporal Kipchumba was treated and discharged while his colleague was referred to Sagam Hospital for specialised care because his condition was critical.
