Kenyan Elite Runner Makes A 8km Dash To Evade Police Arrest For Sex Crimes In The US

A 31 year Kenya elite runner, Eric Kipkemei Chirchir, ran eight kilometers in a bid to evade being arrested by police officer in Bergen County, New Jersey, in the US. The athlete was confronted by the police when they received a complaint that he had touched a 15 year old girl inappropriately in Bogota Golf Centre where he works.

Mr Chirchir is accused of entering the women’s locker room where he allegedly encountered the teenager who managed to escape and report the incident to the authorities. When he was confronted he dashed past them to his house that is 8 kilometers from the golf centre, leaving behind his bicycle and bag.

He showed his prowess as a world class athlete by making the 8 km dash to his house look like a child play. "He's fast," Detective Sgt Jon Misskerg of the Bogota Police Department told "This is one of the world's elite marathon runners."
He was found in her six year daughter’s room hiding in a closer where he was arrested. Mr Chirchir celebrated his 31st birthday in the coolers and has been charged with
criminal sexual contact, obstruction of justice, resisting arrest and eluding police and is being held at the Bergen County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Chirchir will face deportation if he is found to be no longer subject to the Bergen County Jail detention.
