Three suspects armed with machetes, were arrested on Sunday as they got ready to attack motorists along the southern bypass.
Brian Mwangi and Nickson Muchiri aged 25, were arrested following a well executed operation, mounted by Langata based Police Officers.
According to DCI post on social media the third suspect aged 15, was arrested as he tried to flee to the nearby Ngong forest, in a bid to evade arrest.
“Two motorbikes used by the criminals as their getaway means were also impounded, in the meticulous operation staged by the officers,” read the statement.
The suspects will be arraigned in court today to answer to charges of preparing to commit a felony.
Their arrest follows after claims were made of regular attacks that have been staged against motorists, along the busy highway.
Last week, six other suspects were flushed out of the forest in a similar operation, after they attacked a motorist and his three-year-old son.
Officers conducted an operation following a report by a motorist who was attacked and violently robbed.
