Suspected robber killed by dogs

22 February 2013, 14:51 Alloys Musyoka

A middle aged man was killed by dogs while his five accomplices escaped death as they attempted to steal a vehicle and household goods from a tourist owned residence in Malindi district on Thursday night.

The man who has not yet been identified and his friends are said to have broken into a private house and started stealing before they accidentally pressed an alarm attached to a certain security company who responded immediately.

Malindi district commissioner Joshua Nkanatha said the suspects had tried to steal a vehicle whose owner was not there but all in vain since they did not have the keys.

He said they then decided to use TukTuk to ferry household goods and other assorted items from the house.

Before they were through, one of them pressed security alarm and started escaping after realizing that security guards had arrived to respond to the alarm.

According to the DC, the deceased jumped over the fence to another private house owned by a tourist to escape arrest when he was confronted by several security dogs that killed him.

After seeing what had happened to their colleague, the suspects surrendered to security guards who then handed them to police officers who had also arrived at the scene of incident.

He said the suspects then led officers to their house where they recovered a motorcycle suspected to have been stolen many days ago.

The suspects are being held at Malindi police station as the body of the deceased was taken to Malindi district hospital mortuary.

The deceased together with the other suspects are said to have also been involved in another incident where a tourist was shot before his household properties were stolen.

Investigations into the matter have been started.
