A robber armed with an AK47 rifle ordered a barmaid to serve two beers each to customers as he robbed them of their mobiles phones, a Nyeri court was told today.

The barmaid, Catherine Wambui, told the court that Jackson Wamae Wachira, who is charged with violently robbing her of Shs 6,000, a DVD player and two crates of Allsops lager, ordered her to give a double round to the 13 patrons in the bar as he took his time to relieve them of their valuables.

She said at first a masked gunman entered the Kiambuthia Bar In Manyatta Village near Naro Moru and after shooting in the air, ordered everyone to lie down.

She said she gave him the Ksh 900 at the counter when he demanded money from her and he left.

She added that after the masked man left, another one entered and demanded more money upon which she led him to her room behind the bar where she gave him shs 6,000 and a DVD player.

It was when they returned to the bar that Wachira, who was allegedly armed with an AK47 rifle and a knife, ordered her to serve the patrons with two beers each as he ransacked their pockets for valuables during the September 24 incident.

Wambui added that when the two robbers were done with the customers, the accused then took an extra crate of Allsopps beer and together with his accomplice melted into the night.

Ms Wambui, together with some of her customers and the owner of the bar reported the matter to Naro moru Police Station.

She told the court she was later called by the police station to identify whether a gangster who had been arrested sometime after the incident was the accused.

She said that she was able to identify him because he had an upper tooth missing and was unmasked.
