Mulero to link the closest bus stop around 10:00 p.m. I
sensed my phone ringing and I picked it. Just few seconds
while on the call, I noticed some young boys about 12
swarming like bees towards me.
I ran but I fell down. They rough handled me, threatened
me with an axe and took my phone. They retreated and
abandoned me inside the gutter.
A couple of minutes after standing up, I saw RRS patrol
vehicle. I reported the incident and showed them the
direction they went. They gave them hot chase, and arrested
them with my phone”.
