A 28-year-old man Vincent Lewis is in police custody at Kawale in Lilongwe for allegedly forcefully performing unnatural sex on a fellow man.
The arrest follows a complaint by the victim who was staying together with the suspect in the same house for two months.
It is alleged that the incident occurred during the night while the victim was sleeping while drunk.
The victim also reported that earlier in September 2021, he woke-up naked without knowing how he undressed himself and during the day he suffered abdominal pain, but he did not notice anything since he was drunk before going to bed.
Kawale Police Station spokesperson Sergeant Mabvuto Phiri said Lewis will answer a charge of sodomy which is contrary to Section 153 (a) of the Penal Code.
Lewis hails from Kamphawi Village, Traditional Authority Nsamala in Balaka district.
