Detectives attached to the Serious Crimes Unit made a breakthrough Saturday morning when they arrested a suspect linked to a spate of disappearances of young college girls from their homes.

Police investigations have been ongoing to establish the circumstances of the girls’ disappearance.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Rashid Barasa Omari who poses as a rich businessman led detectives to his house where valuables including laptops, mobile phones and handbags belonging to victims.

The 21-year-old preys and later coerces his victims who he fishes from the comments section appearing on Tour and Travel advertisements with a promise to sponsor them to the advertised destinations.

Instead, he lures them to lodgings in Nairobi after sending them bus fare, then robs them off their valuables before disappearing to his hideout.
