A pack of thugs had it rough after attempting to rob a General Service Unit (GSU) officer at night as he headed to the camp in the company of two ladies.
In an update on its social media pages, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the officer had gone to unwind at a nearby trading center and he was attacked while returning to the camp at around midnight.
“The officer, an instructor at the GSU Training school had walked to Mihang’o trading centre to unwind from a hard day’s work, and was walking back to the paramilitary training camp at midnight sandwiched by the two babes, before the assailants struck and spoiled an imminent party,” DCI said in part.
The three were ambushed by thugs on a motorbike forcing the two ladies to scamper for their safety, leaving the officer to battle them.
Little did the thugs know that they had just encountered a drill instructor and a stickman par excellence, with a career spanning over 10 years of training several details of paramilitary red berets.
“The officer launched a barrage of blows and kicks that disfigured one of the thugs’ mandibular anatomy, sending him to the ground rolling in pain
“This forced the remaining thug to draw a long knife, which he used to stab the officer, before the officer fled the scene leaving the thugs to their own devices,” DCI narrated.
The officer returned with reinforcement after a short while to comb the scene.
The officers gathered two canines and one premolar and a black synthetic wig, left behind by one of the fleeing ladies, the DCI said.
The injured officer was then rushed to Ruai hospital for treatment.
According to preliminary investigations, the thugs had earlier staged two separate attacks in Embakasi and Njiru where they robbed members of the public of their mobile phones, cash and other valuables.
Detectives have since launched a manhunt for the suspects.
DCI urged medical practitioners within the area to be on the look out for male patients with disjointed jawbones and missing teeth.
