Three men’s first foray into necklace robbery on Wednesday ended in serious injury in the capital.
Police said the men, aged 20, 24 and 26, targeted a 20-year-old university student, waiting for him in a quiet place, then pouncing on him and beating him with a stick.
Despite his injuries, the victim was able to shout for help, but the robbers seized his necklace before police arrived.
A subsequent police chase netted the three men, though, and a confession soon followed. Nokorwat
