Police on Tuesday arrested an Indonesian refugee residing in Kiunga, Western province, for allegedly having unnatural sex with a female dog, The National reports.
North Fly provincial police commander Chief Insp Tobby Hamago said the suspect was arrested for committing an act of unnatural sex by sexually penetrating a female dog between 9am and 10am on Sunday last week at Kumbit Corner, Kiunga.
According to police reports, the suspect, 25, from Timka village in Merauke district of Indonesia’s Irian Jaya, was arrested after a formal complaint was received from the owner of the female dog.
“The suspect is now detained at Kiunga police cells awaiting a court appearance,” Chief Insp Hamago told The National yesterday when contacted about the incident.
He said the dog was a local breed.
Police said the suspect was caught in the act red-handed by four Kumbit Corner residents, who reported the matter to police, Insp Hamago said.
Police said the suspect was seen naked with his trousers down to his ankles while he sexually penetrated the animal from the rear.
They said the suspect covered the dog’s mouth with his T-shirt.
“People have come in and given their versions of the story, which are similar to this,” Chief Insp Hamago said.
It was reported that this was not the first time the suspect had been sighted sexually penetrating female dogs.
Police said he would be charged with committing unnatural sex under section 210 (1) (b) of the Criminal Code.
