A 21-year-old man has been charged with touching a woman’s buttocks in Nairobi CBD.
Ramadhan Johnson, who has been charged at Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi, is alleged to have committed the offence along Murang’a Road.
“You are charged that on March 10, 2022, along Murang’a Road, Nairobi, you intentionally and unlawfully touched the buttocks of Makena Sara Ngari with your hands against her will,” the charge sheet read in part.
Ramadhan, who pleaded not guilty to one count of committing an indecent act with an adult, was slapped with a bond of Ksh300,000 with alternative cash bail of Ksh100,000.
According to a police report seen by K24 Digital, on the material day at around 9:00 pm, the complainant, who is a business lady along Murang’a Road, was returning her umbrella to her store when the accused who was walking behind her, intentionally touched her buttocks without her consent.
“While coming back from the store as she was walking along a narrow path, she was attacked by the accused person who intentionally touched her buttocks with his hands and pulled her towards his body,” the police report read.
The complainant, upon seeing three other men who reportedly also had the intention of abusing her, fled the scene for her safety.
On March 11, 2022, the 34-year-old complainant according to court documents, sent a group of elderly men to talk to the accused to admit his mistake and apologise but he refused.
She then decided to file a complaint at the Central Police Station.
The matter will be mentioned on March 30, 2022.
