CCTV Captures Thief Stealing Bag Inside Nairobi Restaurant (VIDEO)


The customer could be seen chatting with two of his friends at Big Square restaurant along the road before a man walked in and sat right behind them before pretentiously talking on his phone. 

A smartly-dressed man walked into a high-end restaurant along Moi Avenue in Nairobi and stole a backpack from a customer who was with a group of friends. 

In an undated 1:21 second video seen by Viral Tea and captured on CCTV, the customer could be seen chatting with two of his friends at Big Square restaurant along the road before a man walked in and sat right behind them before pretentiously talking on his phone. 

He scanned the environment for possible threats that might catch him in his next act as he reached out for the bag stealthily with his foot.

He dragged the bag slowly towards him while still talking on his phone before pulling it towards him with his hand before he stood up, picked up the bag and walked out of the restaurant. 

The man’s stealthy tactics were however a contrast to a similar incident where a man walked into a restaurant at Gaberone Road off Luthuli Avenue in Nairobi on Wednesday, June 30, and boldly snatched a mobile phone from a customer in the premises. 

The thief crept up to her from behind and stole the gadget before dashing out of the restaurant. With the help of other customers having breakfast at the restaurant, the woman tried to get a hold of the suspect but to no avail. 

Both cases are a sign of the increase in insecurity cases in Nairobi CBD and its environs, with Kenyans taking to social media to highlight their plights.

Muggers have also been targeting everyone in the city; from ordinary citizens to businessmen, motorists as well as high-profile figures. So far, two notable personalities in Kenya, YouTuber Joy Kendi and KBC anchor Shiksha Arora have been victims of the vice. 

On Friday, July 23, a 3-minute video of a Chinese national exposing the tactics thieves use before snatching a person’s phone went viral on social media, detailing count-by-count how the vice is carefully planned and masterfully executed. 

Out of his four experiments that entailed him using a decoy Samsung Galaxy A11, he found that it takes an average of 0.21 seconds for a thief to snatch your phone from any point in the city; matatu, car or while walking along the street. 

Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai ordered an Anti-Mugging team be deployed within Nairobi CBD, and other major towns. The special team will also collaborate with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) to ensure safety and security within the matatu industry. 

“We have a special anti-mugging squad that handles robbery with violence incidents including the ones that involve Boda boda riders. 

“We have been engaging the operators through a sensitization program dubbed Usalama bararbarani (Road safety) on abiding by the rule of law,” stated the IG.
