The armed men who were on board a rickshaw robbed the local residents and business people of valuable belongings including mobile phones, computers among others.

One of the robbers escaped unhurt but the forces in charge of the operations said they are following him.
The wounded suspects have moved the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department in Mogadishu where they are interrogated.
The police also recovered weapons used by the robbers during the operations.
This operation comes as the number of armed robberies in the capital has been on increase in the last few weeks.
