Sunday night robbery in Mai Mahiu
The 68-year-old man had met the young woman in Mai Mahiu Town to discuss the sale of a parcel of land which she intended to buy in Narok.
After the meeting, the woman convinced the man to spend the night with her in Naivasha Town, saying it was too late for the elderly man to drive back to Narok, some 90 kilometres away.
Because of his poor night vision, the man let the lady drive but along the way, he asked her to pull over by the side of the road so he could relieve himself.
As the man was in the thicket answering the call of nature, the lady drove off, leaving him stranded.
Boda Boda operators helped the old man report the incident at Karai Police Station.
