Police have launched a manhunt for a man alleged to have stabbed a senior police officer on Sunday inside a pub in Kuria West, Migori County, southwestern Kenya.
The officer was said to have made away in an entertainment joint identified as Apple Bar after receiving a tip-off that the suspect was brandishing a machete and a knife inside the pub.
The guy apparently let go of his machete as the officer tried to disarm him, went for his knife, and stabbed the officer in the right upper thigh before fleeing into the darkness.
The officer was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and discharged.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
