According to the woman, identified as Ann Njeri, they were drinking with the athlete until around midnight Wednesday.
“We left and as he was dropping me home, he made sexual advances to me and I declined. He locked the vehicle and started demanding it,” she said.
Speaking from her hospital bed at Mediheal Hospital in Eldoret, Njeri said, she managed to reach the unlock button in the car and stormed out.
“But as I was hurriedly opening our gate, he ran and caught up with me. A scuffle ensued and he threatened to kill me. He reached for a knife and stabbed me,” she said.
Njeri remebered she screamed for help before passing out.
The athlete sped off from the scene and drove to the Eldoret Police Station where he recorded a statement claiming he had been attacked by thugs.
As he left the scene, Kemboi allegedly dropped his personal documents that included a wallet, passport and money in both local and foreign currency which are in the custody of the woman's family.
