Police in Ugenya are holding a 15-year-old boy after he allegedly defiled his sister’s eight-month-old daughter at Ogarama village.
Area assistant chief William Lala said the little girl had been left under the care of the Standard Eight pupil when her mother went to the market.
Lalal said the mother found the child bleeding from her private part after returning from the market.
The woman then rushed the child to the nearby Urenga health centre before they were referred to Ukwala sub-county hospital where the child was admitted.
The suspect faces a defilement charge.
