Man appears for malicious damage



Lazarus Kheibeb, 32, is currently in police custody after smashing his partner’s windows with stones.

He is scheduled to appear again next week for plea.
Another man also appeared in court for the same charges; Joceam Bezuidenhout, 29, whose relationship to the complainant was not revealed. He allegedly broke the door to  Jessica Deutlinger’s house by smashing it with an unknown object early this month.
It is not clear what his intentions were but he threatened to kill her and is now facing charges of assault by threat and malicious damage.
He is currently held at the Wanaheda Police Station and is expected to return to court on 22nd of next month.
