“The knife-wielding thug is said to have accosted Mohammed Adan and his wife Sameha Mihammud as they headed home around the KAG Church, snatching their mobile phones before taking off on a getaway bike with an accomplice,” DCI said in a statement.

According to DCI, Choku was arrested on Tuesday night by the OCS Huruma police station, which was leading an anti-mugging team within the area.

The suspect tried to escape using a motorbike with his accomplice before they hit a pavement and fell. The second suspect managed to escape after diving into a stormwater culvert.

Police records indicate that Ngugi had previously been arrested over similar allegations.

“During interrogation, it was discovered Choku had been arrested in 2011 for preparing to commit a felony and was released on cash bail,” DCI said.
