In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through the Mpigi district, the territorial Police have taken into custody a 53-year-old Italian identified as Patrick Forouzesh, on allegations of sexually assaulting a 23-year-old maid.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga revealed that the incident happened on September 5, 2023, at about 5:00 p.m.

Details surrounding the case paint a troubling picture, according to Enanga, who revealed that it is reported that the suspect first encountered the victim at her sister’s residence in Mpami village.

Her sister, who is involved in the chicken feed business, was where they crossed paths. Patrick allegedly offered the young woman a job as a housemaid, with a promised monthly salary of shillings 200,000.

“The victim began her employment on the following day, September 4, 2023. However, a horrifying turn of events unfolded while she was simply performing her duties, cleaning a table. The suspect, according to the victim’s account, suddenly seized her, forcibly dragged her onto a sofa, and sexually assaulted her. Shockingly, the suspect claimed that such acts were commonplace during rainy weather,” Enanga said as quoted by Newvision.

He added that in the aftermath of the traumatic incident, the victim confided in her sister, who promptly took action.

The revelations were made on Monday during the weekly joint security briefing at Naguru in Kampala.

On September 6, 2023, the matter was officially reported to the Mpigi Police Station. As part of the investigation, the victim underwent a medical examination, and DNA samples were collected as evidence. Simultaneously, the suspect, Forouzesh Patrick, was apprehended and subjected to examination under PF 24a.

Law enforcement officials have vowed to diligently investigate cases involving individuals who exploit and sexually assault female workers. Working closely with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), they are committed to ensuring that the suspect faces the full legal consequences of his actions.
