Brave Chinese injured wrestling armed robbers in Nairobi church


A Chinese national was on Sunday injured on his left shoulder during a bizarre robbery incident at the Spiritual Recovery Church in Kilimani, Nairobi.

You Do You was injured after he wrestled three armed suspected robbers who had entered the church and ordered the congregation to lie down before robbing them.

Confirming the incident at Vigilance House, police spokesperson Zipporah Mboroki said three men, one armed with a pistol, entered the church and ordered everyone to lie down and proceeded to rob them.

Ms Mboroki said that the robbers made a way with a handbag containing an LG mobile phone valued Sh40,000 and other personal effects belonging to one Kamene Kitheka and an Inifinx phone valued at Sh2,500.

The spokesman added that the gang also stole Sh6,000 belonging to a Chinese national Kim Si Jun and a Nokia phone and Sh9,000 from Pastor John Kimei who was presiding over the service.

She said that Mr Do You was treated and discharged with minor injuries but no arrest has been made. Neither have the stolen items been recovered.

Police officers investigating the incident have urged members of the public to volunteer information they may have to help them arrest the culprits.
