The presenter further recounted that a third guy came into the picture and through the driver’s window, unlocked her car.

Apparently, the third guy reached for her purse which had her phone and while she attempted to block the robbery, she was stranged and left to gasp for air as she tried to get the attention of other drivers.

“As he was strangling my neck, I desperately gasped for air, I started hooting loudly to get some attention hoping somebody would help me. People started getting out of their cars and that’s when he let go and fled. He went with my purse but I am TRAUMATIZED that he attacked me,” Shiksha narrated.

According to the DCI, whereas sharing mugging cases on social media is good for sensitization, members of the public are encouraged to file formal complaints to help the police and the prosecution build water-tight cases against perpetrators once arrests are made.

“Many are scenarios when suspected muggers go scot-free even after they have been arrested along various Streets and Walks within the CBD, as the few who report at the station fail to pursue their cases or never turn up for hearings,” said DCI.

Earlier, Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai promised to enhance security in the CBD over the surge in the criminal activities.
