Two women arrested after botched robbery attempt
Police have arrested two ladies following their botched attempt to rob a man they had drugged in Mwea, Kirinyaga County.
The two ladies Grace Njeri and Evelyne Esendi aged 29 and 32 respectively had booked a room at Village Inn Guest House and lured their victim Daniel Gathenge Maira to their trap.
Police say that the two had already succeeded in drugging the man and had proceeded to the ATM and made some transactions.
The CCTV controller of the ATM upon smelling suspicion then alerted the police over the ladies’ moves.
“Earlier, the duo had been spotted leaving the room and proceeded to an ATM belonging to a leading bank, where detectives believe some transactions were made,” said the DCI.
“It is this suspicious move that attracted the attention of the CCTV controller at Nice Digital City, who immediately alerted Police Officers based at Wanguru Police station,” the DCI further stated.
The officers’ quick response saved the man who was found lying on the bed unconscious.
He is currently receiving treatment at Comrade Mission Hospital.
The two suspects are currently in police custody.
