A man was stabbed to death by armed robbers while responding to a distress call from his neighbour in Riruta, Nairobi County.
George Omondi was unlucky to lose his life when he got on the way of the attackers, who stabbed him twice as they staged their escape.
According to Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Omondi and his wife Jackline Omondi were asleep at 5am when they heard a loud distressing screams outside their house and immediately Omondi dashed for the door in aid of the victim.
“The robbery victim had been accosted by knife wielding thugs who dispossessed him of his mobile phone and were in the process of emptying his pockets, when Omondi got on the way,” stated DCI.
The 48-year-old man was later pronounced dead on arrival at Life Friends Medical Center.
Dagoreti based detectives have launched a manhunt for the suspects.
Elsewhere, a 50-year-old woman collapsed and died at Salama police station on Wednesday evening, as she painfully recounted how her 19-year-old daughter had tormented her by not going home during school holidays.
Consolata Mutua, had walked her daughter to the station accusing her of bad behaviour.
“As she begged our officers to intervene so that her daughter mends her ways, she became emotionally overwhelmed and collapsed,” DCI stated.
Police officers and a well wisher tried to administer first aid and resuscitate her to no avail.
She was rushed to Kilungu Sub-county hospital where unfortunately, she passed away while undergoing treatment.
DCI boss George Kinoti has advised students to be responsible and take the wise counsel offered by their teachers and parents in order to avoid such incidents in future.
“Religious leaders are equally called upon to take their rightful role in guiding and mentoring young adults, to becoming responsible adults in future,” DCI advised.
