Namibia: Alleged Bestial Fugitive Arrested

Windhoek — The man allegedly caught in the sexual act with a dog in Rehoboth last month was nabbed by the Rehoboth police. The man has been on the run since then and was finally nabbed last week Wednesday.

The man was caught in the act of having sex with a dog by the house occupants of Sonner Water, Block E in Rehoboth on Monday, October 8 at 3am in the morning. A young boy woke up after he heard the dog making strange noises and saw the man having sex with the dog.

The boy then alerted his father and when the father and the son went to investigate together, the suspect bolted from the scene, Detective Inspector Simon Hauwanga said.

Bestiality is sexual intercourse committed by a human being with an animal.

One Markus Kharuxab (44) appeared in court last Friday, Warrant-Officer Charles Goagoseb informed New Era on Monday.

Goagoseb said Kharuxab was arrested in Rehoboth, in a house in the town's Block E neighbourhood.

The case was however postponed to November 29, pending the Prosecutor General's decision on how to proceed with the matter.

Magistrate Leopold Hangalo denied Kharuxab bail. Fatima Mendonza represented the State last Friday.
