“While sitting in her room charging a phone, the deceased came and began touching her private parts while asking her for sex. He was holding a plastic rod like a walking stick,” Mr Twesige noted, adding that it was then that the girl reportedly pushed Kabuye and he knocked his head on a metallic door and injured his face as he fell prostrate.
The deceased then got up and stormed out of the victim’s room, threatening to do something to her.

In the meantime, police have revealed that the female juvenile has been arrested for interrogation because their inquiries indicate that the deceased and the teenage girl were alone at the time of the fight.
