Two men emerged from the tuk-tuk with firearms on their hands. They ordered him to surrender and robbed his Jericho pistol which was loaded with 15 rounds of ammunition.

After committing the crime most foul, they managed to escape before the cop raised a red alarm on the incident.

Coast Regional Commander Manase Musyoka has called upon the public to volunteer on information about the robbers.

"It is an unfortunate incident and our plea is that we are looking for that firearm and we appealed to members pf public that should anyone have any information that would help us get this firearm it will be appreciated. We have already set aside a good token to give as an appreciation." she said.

People should work close with security officers by chipping in with relevant information that can help expose criminals in the society.
