A woman was shot by a group of robbers in Mbezi Beach on Wednesday evening.

The woman was shot in the thigh before being robbed of her two mobile phones at Africana in Mbezi Beach.

An auxiliary officer posted at the Camel Oil fuel station came to the rescue, shooting one one of the suspected robbers.

“This robber said they had been hunting this car for a while,” says Saidi Mbenga, KZ Security Supervisor, which guards the fuel station.

Another of the suspected five robbers was captured by a mob when he reportedly fell from the motorcycle he was on.

Police then took him into custody.
