Friday, September 20, 2019- Two Kenyan men residing in Minnesota US have been charged with sexually assaulting a mentally impaired woman.
The suspects, Francis Ndegwa Kamau, 39, and Kenneth Wagacha Kibe, 37, are accused of sexually assaulting the victim at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in March.
Kamau, was arrested in Minneapolis and booked in the Scott County Jail on August 8 in connection with third-degree felony criminal sexual conduct.
The victim lives in a group home for people with cognitive and physical disabilities, according to the warrants.
The warrants allege that on the afternoon of March 30, Kamau and Kibe approached the woman while she waited at the casino buffet.
The three chatted for a while before casino surveillance video captured them entering a hotel room for more than an hour.
The woman told police that when the group entered the hotel room, both men tried to have sex with her several times even though she told them to stop.
During a sexual assault exam at St. Francis Medical Center, the woman told a nurse that Kamau had told her he wanted to “give her a baby.”
Both men are charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct for sexual penetration of a person who “is mentally impaired, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless.”
Each charge carries with it a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, a fine of $30,000 (Sh3 million) or both.
According to police report, Kamau initially denied being involved in the assault but changed tune when officers told him that Kibe had a video of him on top of the woman and said that she was “enticing them” and that they were not “too serious about having sex,”
Kamau is already in police custody while the warrant for Kibe has not yet been served, and he has not been arrested.
