A kidnaper who plaited his hair to escape police was arrested on Monday in Naivasha as he took a motorcycle taxi out of the Rift Valley town.
DCI detectives say they arrested Charles King’ori alias Delvin Maina, the suspect behind baby Liam’s kidnapping, following a dramatic chase in the streets of Naivasha town witnessed by members of the public.
“King’ori has been arrested as he tried to escape our dragnet, a few hours after the baby he had kidnapped was rescued,” DCI tweeted.
So desperate were his attempts to escape justice, that he had visited a salon in the town to have his hair braided to help conceal his identity.

Detectives were, however, too smart for the suspect’s antics, since they pounced on him as he escaped on a getaway motorbike.
“His arrest follows stealth and relentless efforts by the investigators, to ensure that the perpetrator does not enjoy a single day of freedom again, to torment innocent children and their families,”
