Nyeri: A man was arrested after dressing up as a schoolgirl in order to sneak into his girlfriend's school.
An 18-year-old man was arrested after dressing up as a schoolgirl and sneaking into a girl's secondary school to visit his girlfriend.
According to a report released on Tuesday by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the young man's plan was foiled by schoolgirls who raised the alarm minutes after 10 p.m.
The devious student was dressed entirely in the girls' school uniform, and he had breasts stuffed into his chest.
"The young man from Gatugi Day secondary school, dressed in the girls' school uniform from head to toe, joined a group of girls as they walked to their dormitories from their evening preps, minutes past 10 p.m.," DCI said.
According to a police officer who investigated the case, he attempted to enlist the help of one of the students in order to locate his girlfriend.
As fate would have it, the girl who had been approached quickly realized that the person speaking in a deep voice and sporting a broad chest was, in fact, a man.
"She immediately started screaming, prompting a cacophony of screams from the other girls, as they fled in bewilderment to different directions, almost causing a stampede," according to the police report.
A school guard then dashed to the dormitory, only to be met by a man running at full speed in a skirt pulled up to his knees.
According to police, the school security guard chased down the speeding teen and caught him just in time before he jumped off the school's perimeter wall.
Officers arrived at the school after the school principal alerted them to the situation and interrogated the teenager.
According to the police report, he told officers that he had been invited to the school by his girlfriend for a 'unspecified business.'
Officers frisked him and discovered three condoms, a mobile phone, and a lighter.
The suspect was arrested and is being held at the Othaya police station on charges of preparing to commit a felony.
