Two Suspects Arrested In Ruiru For Impersonating Detectives
Two suspects masquerading as detectives were arrested on Thursday night after they raided an apartment in Ruiru, Central Kenya.
According to police, the duo who raided a house at Elim Shepherd apartment at around 1am introduced themselves as detectives based at Pangani police station before residents became suspicious and raised the alarm, attracting officers from Ruiru police station who rushed to the scene and restored order.
The swift response by the Ruiru-based officers caught the thugs by surprise as one of them attempted to fly from the 3rd floor of the apartment only to land on the apartment's floor with a heavy thud, seriously injuring his head.
His beleaguered accomplice surrendered immediately after handing over his fake pistol and fake police certificate of appointment.
The suspect, who sustained serious injuries, was rushed to Ruiru Level 4 hospital for treatment as his accomplice, identified as Robert Gitonga, is being held at Ruiru police station.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
