Police in Gilgil, Nakuru County, have initiated a manhunt for four individuals suspected of roughhousing members of the public before loading them into a white Toyota Noah and robbing them of their goods. The infamous knife-wielding gang, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), selects out specific targets in secluded regions, whom they frogmarch into their vehicle, tie up and blindfold, before robbing and dumping them a distance away. "In one such incidence yesterday morning in Gilgil, a lone guy who was waiting for a matatu on the roadside was forced into the said vehicle, before his cash, some groceries, Cooperative and Equity Bank ATM cards were snatched from him," DCI said in a statement.
After being compelled to give the pin codes for the atm cards, the tied-up and blindfolded victim was tossed from the driving truck in Kariandusi. Fortunately, he was rescued by passers-by before the cops arrived. "We ask members of the public in the county to be aware of this trend, and to report to any police station if they have information that might lead to the identification of the criminals or vehicles that are thought to be using alternative registration numbers," DCI said.
