Kenya: Ever Been a Victim of These Gang? Come Identify Them - Photos

6 December 2018

Police have arrested four people suspected to be a gang that targets people who have withdrawn large sums of money from banks.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Thursday said the four, Josephine Wambui Kariuki, Peter Karigo Muchai, Patrick Ndung'u Kinuthia and Hadija Karimi were arrested in their hideout in Kajiado County after being hunted for weeks.

The DCI urged members of the public who have fallen victims to the four suspects to report to the nearest police station.

"A gang of four that has been waylaying people coming from banks and robbing them of their hard earned cash and other valuables were early today arrested in Kajiado County. Look at them keenly. If you're a victim, kindly make a report at your nearest Police Station or @DCI_Kenya HQs," DCI said on Thursday.

The arrests come barely three weeks after detectives also published photos of three other suspected muggers, whom are said to rob city residents of their cash and valuables in broad daylight at the CBD.
