A Nairobi court has charged a man for breaking a window, and door wire grill and assaulting police officers at the report office.

The Makadara Law courts charged Dennis Muriithi for contravening section 339(1) of the Penal code after he was accused of damaging property worth Ksh10,000.

At the same time, the accused was charged with creating disturbance contrary to section 95(10 (b) of the Penal code.

While appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Mary Njagi, the court heard that Muriithi who was arrested at Kayole junction argued with officers at the station and refused to give his name.

He also shouted at officers and threatened to assault them before destroying the window glass set at the station.

Muriithi pleaded guilty to the charges and is set to return to court tomorrow, Monday, February 6, 2023.

Elsewhere, a tussle between two lovebirds ended in a Makadara court when the man admitted to stealing a Bible, a pillow, a mat and a mobile phone from his girlfriend.

The court heard that Peter Otieno stole the items from Valentine Songore on January 30, 2023, after an argument ensued.

Prior to that, the accused had visited the complainant's house and demanded breakfast. His girlfriend gave in to his demands and served him tea.

The accused went on to rant, complained and requested sex, when his girlfriend denied his request, he allegedly insulted and slapped her.

The complainant then ran for her life and reported her boyfriend to a relative. When they returned to her house, the accused had left but the items mentioned above had gone missing.

Consequently, the two reached out to Otieno only to be met by insults. This prompted them to report the matter to the police.

Police who arrested the accused recovered the items at his house and put him in custody.

While appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Mary Njagi, Otieno pleaded guilty to theft and handling stolen property contrary to Section 268 (1) of the penal code.
