"I heard the bell and opened the door to find my neighbour standing there. He asked for my mother and I told him she'd gone to the market. Suddenly, he covered my mouth with his hand and pushed me towards the floor. I fell down. He locked the door and tried to molest me. Gathering all the courage I had, I repeatedly kicked his stomach and chest. He lost grip on me, and I pushed him. I ran into the bedroom, locked it and shouted for help through the window. I heard him opening the main door " she said in the complaint.
Minutes later, her mother returned and they proceeded to the police station to file a complaint. Cops said they rushed to the man's home immediately, only to find out that he has fled with his family. A special team is on the lookout for the offender.
