Police officers at a past crime scene/Courtesy
There was morning drama in Machakos County after a police officer was caught red-handed robbing university students.
DCI reports that the suspected officer identified as Kevin Sila and an accomplice David Muringu had accosted two Machakos University students as they headed to their rented quarters on a bicycle last night.
The officer and his partner in crime flagged down the students in the wee hours of the morning before descending on one of them with resounding slaps as they ransacked his pockets.
They managed to take away his mobile phones and other valuables as the other students manage to escape.
The student who escaped from the hands of the officer raised alarm, waking up other comrades who rushed to the crime scene to defend one of their own.
"Drama unfolded when the officer attempted to escape after handing back the stolen phone but it was too late as his colleagues from Machakos police station arrived and arrested him and his colleague," DCI said in part.
The suspect is now in police custody ahead of arraignment
