Drama was witnessed on Tuesday evening at Nyamage students' hostel, after two young men fought for a lady as residents watched.
The two young men, identified as Justus Charana and Frank Kioko, students at Kisii University, exchanged heavy blows after they met at the girl's hostel.
Neighbours say that Nash Wairimu and Kioko were inside the hostel when Charana found them in a compromising situation.
"That is when they started fighting before the girl escaped and went into hiding," said James Makori.
Linet Marube wondered why the two opted to fight instead of solving the matter silently.
Questioned on why he decided to fight his fellow student, Charana said that Kioko was not the rightful lover of Wairimu.
"How can this guy sleep with my lady? Is he insane? I have invested alot in her," he said.
However, Kioko mantains that the lady had never told her that she was in love with someone else.
"She has never told me that she had another lover. Instead, she has been claiming that you are just her ex boyfriend!" he said.
It is not clear where the girl went into hiding but the police have launched investigations into the matter.
