A woman has been arrested on suspicion of overdosing a man with a sedative before fleeing with more than $10,000 in a local pub in Embakasi, Nairobi.
Virginia Wangui Thiga, 30, the suspect, was in the company of another woman.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the victim, together with a male friend, were enjoying their drinks at the popular joint when all of a sudden, two light-skinned ladies stepped into the pub.
The men beckoned them to join their table, but they were hesitant and appeared not interested in their vibe.
However, after some few minutes, they changed their minds, much to the delight of the two men, and joined their table.
The four partied until 4 am before staggering to a nearby guest house identified as Rysta.
Once in the room, the victim’s colleague developed cold feet and staggered home, leaving his friend in the company of the two ladies.
“From there henceforth, all the man could recollect was being given some pieces of chicken by the two ladies, before he passed out and found himself at a city hospital, with doctors fighting to save his life,” said DCI.
The ladies also made away with his mobile phone, ATM, and identity card.
