An Italian national who was videotaped assaulting a woman was on Monday arraigned in court following his arrest on Sunday.
The foreigner, Maurisio Montcalli appeared before a Kiambu court where the magistrate ordered he be taken to the hospital for treatment.
The court heard that Montcalli sustained injuries after members of the public attacked him during his dramatic arrest. He will be brought back to the court for plea taking once he is treated.
A video that went viral on social media showed Montcalli, a resident of Edenville Phase One on Kiambu Road, assaulting a Caucasian woman believed to be his neighbor.
