Police said sometime in November 2011, at around 6pm, "Kunyarimwe sent the juvenile to collect maize-meal in a room which was 10 metres away. Prosper allegedly followed and tripped her down intending to rape her.

Kunyarimwe followed them after the juvenile had screamed for help, she allegedly held the girl's legs and gagged her mouth which enabled Prosper to rape the juvenile without any difficulties.
