19 June 2013, 12:35
A girl aged 16 years was arrested Wednesday morning by members of the public for robbing a shop off assorted goods Tuesday night at Oyuma Shopping Centre in Nyando District, Kisumu County.
The girl allegedly dug a hole into a wall through which she gained access to the shop.
She was unfortunately caught after assorting a number of shop goods, ready to go.
When interrogated, she disclosed that she was hunger-stricken hence her action.
She admitted that it was her second time to steal and pleaded for mercy.
She was, however, rescued from the wrath of the irate members of the public by ‘angels of mercy’ who handed her over to Ahero Police.
