Nairobi - A policeman is fighting for his life after a thug stabbed him in an incident in Nairobi's Kariobangi estate.
The policeman was part of a team that had been sent to the area Tuesday night by Police after complaints were made by residents that there was a group of thugs harassing them.
The police arrived at the scene and caught up with the two thugs and whilst looking to arrest him, the Police officer was stabbed in the process.
The thug was then shot dead by fellow police officers.
" We were alerted that there was a robbery incident and unfortunately on trying to arrest one of the suspects, a policeman was stabbed and is in hospital recuperating," Nairobi police boss Japheth Koome told News24.
The thug's accomplices all escaped on foot and Police are hunting them down, according to Koome.
The body of the slain thug was sent to the Nairobi City mortuary.
