A suspected robber has today escaped death by a whisker after being clobbered by an irate mob after he was caught trying to snatch a lady’s handbag at Mutungo Kiduuka.
According to eyewitnesses, it is understood that the victim together with two other assailants trailed their target (a middle-aged lady) all the way from town until she disembarked at St. Mark- Mutungo.
However, in the process of taking her bag, she raised an alarm that alerted passers-by. Two other suspects who reportedly were armed with a pistol took to their heels leaving their colleague stranded.
Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
