Two men, who are brothers, were arrested on charges of assault and theft after they allegedly stole a bike from a strange man, police in Nigeria said.

Katsina State Police said that the two brothers, Suleiman Muritala, 22, and Lawal Muritala, 18, were charged on Friday, after being accused of stripping a man naked before stealing his motorcycle.

Jubrin Rashidu told police that the incident began when he took the brothers as passengers on his motorbike. Around 10:00 p.m., the suspects ordered the victim to stop, pulled a hammer and a machete, and attacked him.

The two brothers stripped the man naked, took the bike and fled from the scene. Police arrived at the scene and located the two brothers.

The two were brought before a magistrate’s court judge, where they were remanded into custody. The victim’s bike and clothes were not recovered.
