INDECENT ACT

The accused is reported to have given the minor Sh 10 after each night.

He is facing an additional charge of committing an indecent act with the minor during the same period.

The accused found the youngster sleeping in an abandoned stall and threatened to kill him if he raised alarm or informed anyone thereafter.

The minor ran away after the third day of the ordeal and returned home.

Martin sent other street boys to look for the minor.

ARRESTED
