Two thugs are in police custody at Thindigua after they were arrested while trying to rob a police officer Tuesday morning.
Police Corporal Nahashon Mungai, based at Kiambu police station had hired a motorbike to take him to GG village in Thindigua, but upon arrival the rider and a man he had picked on their way claiming to be in distress, turned against him demanding for money and other valuables.
Mungai whipped out his firearm and ordered the two to surrender even as they tried to escape.
According to the DCI, the two defied the order forcing Corporal Mungai to open fire, deflating the bike’s front tyre.
Corporal Mungai immobilised the motorbike with a single shot leaving the thugs helpless.
He swiftly arrested the two before calling for reinforcement from his counterparts at Thindigua police post, who responded immediately and took the two in custody.
