The Adamawa State Police Command has arrested a 75-year-old man for attempting to rape a 25-year-old woman.

The Telegraph gathered Tuesday that the police arrested the man, Emmanuel Jaja, in Mukuvinyi Village, Hong Local Government Area.

In a statement made available to newsmen, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, said the man who had invited the young woman to his house, tried to maximize the advantage of her presence in his house.

“He invited his victim to his house and then suddenly advanced forcefully to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her until she resisted,” Nguroje stated.

According to him, “investigation so far reveals that the victim, while trying to prevent the act, used razor blade and cut the erect penis from penetrating her, leaving him with serious injury and now on admission in a hospital receiving treatment.”

Nguroje added that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Afolabi Babatola, has directed the officer in charge of the Family Support Unit of the command to take over investigation and ensure diligent prosecution.
