14 January 2014, 11:15 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Two men will spend four days on the cold floors of Nyeri police station following a court order by acting senior resident magistrate Christine Wekesa on Monday.

The two, Simon Wanjiru and Paul Thuita, are accused of violently robbing an administration police officer of his pistol.

They however denied the charges on Monday when they were arraigned in the court.

In the first count, the duo allegedly violently robbed Joseph Kimani of his smith and wesson pistol while armed with knives and iron bars on December 31, 2013 at Pembe Tatu Estate.

They were further charged that on the same date, jointly with others not before the court, robbed Anthony Mambo of two television sets, two laptops, one desktop computer, three play stations, one digital camera, eight phones, assorted clothes and KES 5 500 cash, all worth KES 414 500.

The prosecutor, Peter Wahome applied for the accused persons to be detained in the police station for four days to enable police to complete investigations and also to enable the prosecution to join their case with another one.

The magistrate also ordered probation office to provide a report about the two during the case’s mention to consider if the accused can be released on bond terms.

Their case was scheduled to be mentioned on January 22, 2014.
