Sunday World reports that Thuswa was involved in an accident and while the officers were busy taking statements, three armed robbers came from nowhere and robbed them of their cellphones and cash.
“While the officers were taking our statements, three armed men appeared from nowhere and ordered all of us, including tow truck drivers and emergency medical people to lie down on the ground,” Thuswa told SundayWorld.
“They took our cellphones and wallets and emptied them before handing them back to us. I was so confused by the whole thing I did not even lie on the ground as instructed. I even asked one of them to give me back my SIM card as I did not want to lose my contacts and he opened the phone and gave it back to me.
“After disarming the male officer, his female colleague ran into one of the ambulances and we did not know where she was. We thought the thugs took her with them when they fled.”
