Man charged for assaulting police

A Katutura man, Lazarus Katenda (35) appeared in the Katutura Magistrate court for assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
Katenda was released on bail of N$1500, which was provisionally cancelled on 18 May and an arrest warrant issued but it was later cancelled.
It is alleged that Katenda resisted a member of police, Paulus Ishidmbwa, when he tried to arrest the suspect.
He allegedly grabbed the officers’ equipment, namely the traffic fine book, and threw it to the ground, and subsequently removed the keys from the ignition of the officers’ vehicle.
The suspect then went on to physically assaulting the police officer by hitting him all over his body.
It remains unclear as to why the suspect was being arrested in the first place. The case has been postponed to 5 November for his plea and trial.
