A teenager was reportedly caught while trying to slit the throat of a 3-year-old girl — the incident is reported to have happened in the city of Touba, Senegal, on Friday, February 4.
According to reports, the teenager was spotted walking hastily with the girl towards an abandoned building at around 5pm when the manager of an auto garage noticed the teenager with the girl and became suspicious and so he began monitoring him as he took the girl into a deserted building located a few meters from the garage.
A little while later, the manager of the garage alerted two of his apprentices to monitor the suspicious movement of the teenager. The apprentices then quietly followed the teenager to his hideout where they were shocked to find him holding a knife over the little girl.
The apprentices nabbed the teenager and took him to the police station where he was questioned. According to the revelations of the Touba Brigade, the suspect is a 15-year-old apprentice driver.
The little girl, identified by her initials, KS, to protect her identity, was rescued and has been reunited with her parents KY and DM, whose names have also been abbreviated to hide their identities.
