    “Two girls aged three and four were last evening rescued by a police officer from a man who had abducted them from their home and was ferrying them to an unknown destination,” the DCI stated.

    The police further stated that the engineer’s attention was drawn to the two girls who seemed uncomfortable being with the man. 

    “After observing him and the little girls briefly, her intuition as a police officer coupled with her motherly instincts led her to be suspicious. She immediately stopped the man and interrogated him,” read the statement.

    After establishing that the man was not related to the girls, Ouya immediately called her seniors working at the Wilson Airport to further investigate the matter.

    Officers who arrived at the scene established that the man had lured the girls from their Muthurwa home, promising to buy them soft drinks.

    “After interrogating the abductor, it was discovered that he had lured the little angels from their home in Muthurwa, promising to buy them a soda. The officers immediately set off for Muthurwa, in search of the parents to the minors,” added the DCI.

    The DCI further confirmed that the girls were reunited with their parents after a frantic search.

    “The man is currently in custody at Langata police station, being processed for arraignment before a court of law,” read the statement.

    The police boss has since been lauded for her bravery and for helping reunite the two girls with their parents.

    “The Directorate of Criminal Investigations thanks C.I Ouya for going beyond the call of duty and rescuing the little angels from the jaws of their captor,” the DCI stated.
