A form three student at Nyamome Secondary School in Suna West location is reported to have fearlessly wrestled with her would-be rapist, stabbing him in the abdomen.
According to Migori police, the student knifed and seriously injured a man who had tried to rape her as she walked to school.
After attacking the man, the girl is stated to have rushed to Migori police station where she reported the incident.
The police also divulged that she sought the assistance of another female schoolmate who bumped into her as she struggled with the man.
The other girl, according to police, allegedly helped her to wrestle the knife from the attacker.
Migori County Police Commander Joseph Nthenge confirmed the incident adding that they have already launched investigations into what may have happened.
