Detectives are looking for three suspects who raided a drinking joint at Ruaraka’s Kasabuni area in Nairobi and stole unknown goods.
According to the Directorate of Criminal of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the three robbers armed with a firearm posed as beggars of unsound minds carrying sacks on their backs before entering the pub.
While inside the joint, they ordered all revellers to lie down before ransacking their pockets for mobile phones, cash and other valuables before fleeing into the darkness.
As they were leaving the scene, the thugs fired two shots into the air, drawing the attention of police officers on patrol, who hurried to the spot.
However, by the time of their arrival, the thugs had vanished into darkness.
Two empty cartridges of 7.62mm were collected at the scene.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
