Theft robbery

People Don't Fear Anything These Days. See How These Men Snatched A Policeman's Phone (Video)

In what has been dubbed as one of the most daring robberies that Nairobi thieves in Kenya have carried out in the recent past, a policeman controlling traffic at the Roysambu roundabout on Thika Road in Nairobi, lost her phone to criminals on a motorcycle in a split-second incident. The brazen theft was recorded on a motorist's dash cam a few minutes after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6.

The footage shows three people on a motorbike approaching a roundabout. Reaching where the police officer was, one of the two passengers reached out and snatched the phone from the traffic police officer's right ear. It all happened like a spark. Shocked, the officer attempted to chase after the thieves, but gave up, almost immediately, realizing that they had widened the distance considerably. 

Appearing confused, the policeman went to a nearby man, who was observing the events quietly, and engaged him in a brief conversation. The video ends by showing the agent controlling the traffic, in what some online users have called "quick acceptance of what happened". Several social media users condemned the incident, wondering what the criminals would do to civilians who have no training in security or protective gear like police officers.
