An unknown man on Wednesday attacked a group of police officers on patrol in the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) and injured two of them.
The officers were in a group of five near Afya Centre, when the assailant attacked one of them with an unknown weapon, cutting him on his left arm.
He then ambushed a second officer who was trying to save his colleague, leaving him with cuts on the neck.
“The assailant fled immediately after the attack,” a police officer who visited the crime scene said.
The officers were rushed to a nearby pharmacy for first aid before they were transferred to Nairobi West Hospital for treatment.
Police said a manhunt has since been launched while maintaining that the officers did not lose their firearms.
