The four are accused of ushering victims into their car by calling out their names or identifying their places of work.
Once the victims are on board, the suspects then reportedly beat them up, blindfold and tie their legs and arms before robbing them.
The sleuths, who were acting on intelligence, intercepted a motor vehicle model Toyota Premio and arrested the first two suspects, 35-year-old David Kinyua Kairu and 26-year-old Jane Wanjiru Macharia, who surrendered.
Seven mobile phones, several ATM cards and a motor vehicle number plate were recovered from their car.
The detectives also established that one of the suspects, Kinyua, had a pending robbery case at Thika Law Courts, while the other – Wanjiru – has a pending murder case at Nanyuki High Court.
