Nairobi - Three carjackers raped a middle-aged woman along the Doldo-Nanyuki Road in Laikipia.
Laikipia North Deputy Commissioner Kamau Ndung’u said the gang, which was armed with G3 rifles intercepted a vehicle in which the woman was travelling in, and raped her in turns.
The carjackers also robbed other people aboard the vehicle of their mobile phones, cash and other valuables during the Monday 9pm attack.
The woman was travelling together with two others and were being driven by a businessman.
This is the fourth time the businessman has been attacked in the recent past at the same spot.
"Our security officers responded immediately and engaged the robbers in a shootout. However they still managed to escape,” said Ndung’u.
The rape victim was taken to Doldo Sub District Hospital where she was treated and discharged.
