A suspect who jumped from the 3rd floor of an apartment to evade arrest is nursing his self inflicted injuries at Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital, Nairobi, in serious condition.
Didmus Mong’are escaped death by a whisker after he lept from his kitchen balcony at Amani apartments in Nairobi’s Embakasi estate and landed on the ground with a thud breaking several of his limbs.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Sgt (W) Rose Mwanzia had stormed his house at 10 am, accompanied by Constable Geoffrey Koros, to arrest him for obtaining money by false pretences.
However, in a bid to trick the officers, Mong’are emerged from his bedroom naked, prompting the officers to allow him time to dress up.
But as fate would have it, after putting on a pair of denim pants & a checked shirt, Mong’are mischievously dashed to the kitchen and flew from the balcony!
“Determined to accomplish her mission, Sgt (W) Mwanzia, almost followed suit but when she saw the suspect writhing on the ground in pain, opted to take the flight of stairs three at one go to restrain the suspect from getting away or harming himself further,” said DCI.
Upon recovery, he will be arraigned in court and charged with obtaining money by false pretenses.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
