Police in Kisumu are trailing suspected thugs behind a trail of bizarre robbery incidents that have left residents of Nyamasaria Estate living in fear.
The gangsters on Friday night made away with assorted household items mainly electronics in a simultaneous raid that also targeted the home of a senior county government officer.
The officer who did not wish to be named reportedly lost his TV and home theatre after the thugs disconnected electric fence and gained entry into his house through the window.
‘’After cutting the window they left with the window bar ostensibly on fear the police would rely on it for fingerprints’’, the shaken officer told Weekly Citizen.
Police have been blamed for laxity in pursuing the thugs even after recording statements from other victims.
However a suspect linked to the crime was escaped death narrowly after he was shot by an arrow.
The ugly incident is a clear pointer that thugs who spray their victims with chloroform at night to put them into a deep sleep could be regrouping to terrorize Kisumu dwellers.
