The man filmed assaulting a female security guard at a residential estate in Komarok, Nairobi has been arrested.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations identified the man as 30-year-old Justus Kamoja Mutune.
“The 30-year-old suspect will be arraigned in court once necessary police action is complete. Many thanks to all those that contacted us,” said the DCI on Tuesday afternoon.
The arrest comes after a public outcry that led to Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Norrdin Haji to order the arrest of the man.
In the video that has been widely shared on social media, the man who has just alighted from a small mini van is seen going to open the gate.
However, the female guard stops him and even closes the gate.
But the incensed man returns from his car this time pushing the guard who goes reeling on the cabro surface.
He goes ahead to assault her until the occupants of the mini van, a man and a matronly woman intervene.
