The gang allegedly escaped through the neighbouring Karura forest, some with gunshot injuries, police said.

According to Chandaria, he heard a loud bang coming from the entrance. When he woke up to check he was met by two thugs in his bedroom.

They were armed with a pistol and a cutter, he said. They demanded for cash prompting him to show them where the safe was.

They then fired in the air forcing Chandaria and his family to take cover.

Police recovered two spent cartridges.

Detectives are probing whether the incident was a case of collusion or a normal robbery.
