Detectives based in Kericho, Kenya’s South Rift, are hunting down three men who violently robbed a 21-year-old lady at a PSV as she travelled home on Sunday night.
After running day-long errands at the green town, the young lady had at 9 pm boarded a 7-seater black Toyota Wish at a stage opposite Kipchimatt Supermarket, bound for the Chepseon area of Kericho.
Opting for the vehicle whose make is popular for transport in the county, the young woman found three male occupants, a driver, and two others she believed were passengers like her.
However, it was a matter of time before the trio turned her holy day of worship into a dreadful experience.
Hardly had she gone for her purse when one of the suspects grabbed her by the neck, ordering her to surrender her smartphone and all the money she had.
The choked and terrified victim complied, whereby the malefactors threw her from the vehicle at the Duka Moja area and sped off.
“Good Samaritans who found her in excruciating pain administered first aid to her, after that reporting the odious incident to the police,” said the DCI.
Police are pursuing the suspects.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
