A clever and deliberate ploy by two women to rob an unsuspecting reveller in Mwea, Kirinyaga county was thwarted after a member of the public informed the police.
Through its official Facebook page, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) revealed that Grace Njeri and Evelyne Esendi aged 29 and 32 booked a room at Village Inn guest house in Mwea East on Sunday, 11 April, and lured their victim Daniel Gathege Maira to their trap before their plans were scuttled.
The two suspected con artists were earlier spotted leaving the room before proceeding to an ATM where detectives believe some transactions were made.
It is this suspicious move that attracted the attention of the CCTV controller at Nice Digital City, a local business place, who immediately alerted Police Officers based at Wanguru Police station.
The officers’ quick response saved Gathege who was found lying on the bed unconscious and is currently receiving treatment at Comrade Mission Hospital, Mwea.
As the victim recuperates, the two suspects remain in custody to answer robbery charges.
