A middle-aged man is now toothless after a fight with a drunk Ongata Rongai police officer.
According to sources the confrontation started when the man who is a security guard demanded the police officer to move out of the premises he was guarding.
The officer who was drunk and causing disturbance confronted the guard, a fight broke out and the man was kicked in the face knocking out four teeth.
Attempts by the man to report the assault at Ongata Rongai Police Station were allegedly rejected by Police officers manning the OB Desk.
“The officer once drunk is always violent, he assaulted the watchman who told him that he is a soldier and wanted him not to make a lot of noise where the watchman was performing his duties,” read a statement.
The incident happened on Friday and the accused had negotiated with the victim to pay him for artificial teeth but they didn’t agree on the amount.
Kajiado North sub county OCPD Abduba Gula said he is aware of the incident and has directed the Rongai OCS to ensure the matter is recorded in the OB for investigation to be launched.
He said the man should take documents including treatment receipts to the station for documentation and also file a P3.
The OCPD noted that the claim is serious and he has instructed DCI officers to take up the matter.
He said he will not condone police officers mishandling the people they are supposed to give protection and if the officer is found involved he will face the law in court like any other lawbreakers.
