Detectives based in Gilgil, Nakuru County are pursuing a criminal gang operating across the county, that has been roughing up members of the public before bundling them in a white Toyota Noah, robbing them of valuables.
The dreaded knife-wielding gang of four men including the driver singles out specific targets at isolated areas, whom they frogmarch into their vehicle, tie up and blindfold, before robbing them and dumping them a distance away.
In one such incident in Gilgil yesterday morning, a lone man who was waiting for a matatu by the roadside was bundled into the said vehicle, before robbing from him cash, some shopping and Cooperative and Equity Bank ATM cards.
The tied up and blindfolded victim was later flung from the moving vehicle at Kariandusi, after being forced to reveal the pin numbers for the atm cards.
Passersby rescued him, thereafter reporting to the police.
We urge members of the public in the county to beware of this trend, and should anyone have information that would lead to the identification of the culprits or vehicle that is believed to be using different registration number plates, to report to any police station, call any of the police hotlines.
