The rape suspect who prompted victim Brenda Nakyejju to fall off from his room in Mitchel Hall at Makerere University has been identified as Jeremiah Mugyema, a 26-year-old fourth year Medical student.
According to police, Mugyema had been apprehended and is being held at Wandegeya Police Station.
Nakyejju fell off Makerere Mitchell Hall third floor on Friday night. She was rushed to Mulago hospital in a very critical condition.
It is alleged that the two had met at Wandegeya earlier in the day before Mukyemu invited his victim to come check out his room.
“He made the first attempt to rape her but it failed. He then locked the room and tried again, still without any success. This is when he left her locked up and went to buy some things from the canteen,” Makerere Chief Security Officer (CSO) Jackson Mucunguzi said.
He said that the already threatened lady also boiled water in a percolator which she would use in case the guy made another attempt.
“When the guy opened the room, the lady poured the hot water into his face and things got out of control. The guy became very violent and with the room locked, this forced the lady to jump out the window.” Mucunguzi asserted.
