A Kenyan man who dared to rob his ex-girlfriend has landed in court.
Local publication NairobiNews reports that George Gacheru denied the robbery with violence charges after he appeared before a court.
It is understood that he robbed his Jane Njeri of her mobile phone and a purse following a disagreement on January 27 this year using violence.
He is accused of committing the offence jointly with an accomplice who remains at large.
But Gacheru denied the charges before senior principal magistrate Derrick Kutto and claimed heâ€™d tried to solve the issue with his ex-lover but her father had been against it and orchestrated the charges before the court.
The two were experiencing differences and he claimed she was being implored to opt for a break up with him while he pursued reconciliation.
Gacheru is said to have accosted Njeri while escorting her child to school. He was reportedly a pillion passenger on a motorcycle when he alighted and grabbed Njeriâ€™s phone and pulse while assaulting her.
She fought back and retreated after the other man also jumped off the bike to join Gacheru. She ran towards a nearby garage where she was rescued by mechanics.
Gacheru said there is still a window for reconciliation but Kutto told him he has already been charged with a serious offence of robbery with violence.
He was released on a bond. The case will be mentioned on August 18.
