A 22-year-old man from Katutura has been charged with robbery with aggravating circumstances.
Quinton Geingob allegedly unlawfully and with the intent to force him into submission pointed a firearm at Kennedy Kauva with the intent of robbing him of his possessions.
The crime is said to have taken place on 22 February 2015 in Katutura, which resulted in an arrest on the same day.
The case was presided over by Magistrate Gerrit van Pletzen and prosecuted by Maria Ndeyapo Andimba.
It was alleged that Geingob was in possession of a firearm which he used for breaking into and entering the complainant’s house.
He allegedly then stole a cellphone worth N$ 500, and took an additional N$ 30 in cash.
The firearm is reportedly missing, and has not yet been found.
The cellphone as well as the cash too are missing. Geingob remains in police custody.
