Police in Kisumu have arrested a 21-year-old man who has been cohabiting with a 15-year-old secondary school student.

Newton Oluoch was arrested at East Othany village in Seme Sub-county after he went into hiding when word went out that he was being sought by police for the offense.

Senior Assitant Chief for East Othany sub location Caleb Apondi said the girl was also arrested.

He said the two had even sired a child after the man had lured her out of school at the age of 14.

The chief further revealed that the two were also in the process of trying to procure an abortion for their second child.

He said the man recently sneaked and again lured the girl out of school despite several warnings from the parents.
