Mumbai: A 17-year-old pizza delivery boy has been arrested in Mumbai for trying to rape and kill a 22-year-old customer at her house.
Mumbai Police officials said the girl had placed an order for pizza with Chovisan Pizza Center in the area on Wednesday evening.
When the accused came to deliver the pizza, he found the girl alone at her residence. He then allegedly forced his way into the girl’s house and attempted to rape her.
As the girl resisted and raised alarm, he assaulted her with a kitchen knife and ran away, police said.
The girl lay in pool of blood for quite some time, but neighbours arrived in time after hearing her cries. She was taken to Poddar Hospital.
The boy was immediately arrested and sent to juvenile remand home.
