Two Kenyans, Nash Muraya and Alex Ngatia, were arrested on Wednesday in the US State of Oregon after botched robbery.

The suspects reportedly fled the scene with police in hot pursuit. Nash Muraya, 21, and Alex Ngatia, 20, are both charged in connection with the incident in Southeast Portland on Sunday night.

The victim told police he was robbed at gunpoint by a man who fled the scene in a car with two other people inside. Police officers traced the vehicle and tried to stop it but the driver took off and a high-speed chase ensued. The car was found abandoned in the area after officers deployed a spike strip on the vehicle’s tires.
