A lady identified as Mercy Mwangi escaped a possible kidnap from a matatu crew by jumping out of the moving vehicle.
She was the only passenger left in the mini-bus when the driver made a diversion to a dark alley.
Noticing she might have been in grave trouble, she tried to raise an alarm but the tout held her down while the driver increased the volume of the music to drown her screams.
Mercy injured her back, head and broke a leg in the process. The bus, registered under Zuri Sacco was stopped by bodaboda operators who had noticed the scuffle.
The Kiamumbi police were called in to solve the situation but it has now emerged that the matatu is still operating the Kahawa West route after the crew was released on a Sh30,000 bond.
