Two Ugandans arrested for robbing ATM customer

23 August 2013, 17:03 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Police in Bungoma are holding two citizens from a nearby country who on Thursday evening attempted to rob a man who had withdrawn cash from an ATM within the town.

Efforts of the two people of Ugandan origin to get away, after snatching an envelope containing KES 75 000 from a Kenya Commercial Bank customer, were thwarted by Administration Police officers manning the financial institution with the help of the members of the public in the 3pm incident.

The duo, a man and a woman, are said to have followed the customer to the bank then snatched his envelope as he finalised appending signatures to some documents at the bank's premise.  

Bungoma County Administration Police Commander Paul Soi confirmed the incident and said the two were cornered by police officers and members of the public as they tried to enter a vehicle that was parked outside the bank.

He identified the two, Ms Nanyanzi Rubanga and Mr Bilali Said, who are still in custody awaiting completion of investigation as they are both from Rubanga in Kampala.

Soi said that a manhunt has been launched to apprehend another suspect, a man believed to be the getaway driver who managed to escape.

“We are interrogating the suspects and will arraign them in court once investigations are complete," said the AP Commander.

A vehicle with registration number UAQ 430G was towed to the Bungoma police station as investigation continues.

At the time of the arrest, the foreigners were found to be in possession of 196 US Dollars and KES 65 000 in cash.
