Man warned after assaulting rowdy neighbors

A Chimbu man bashed up two of his neighbours this morning after they got drunk and were causing a scene near his house.

Nearby residents alerted the police, resulting in the three men ending up at the Six-Mile Police Station.

It was alleged that the 45-year-old man was swearing and then resorted to bashing up his two Tari neighbours after they kept him awake with their music following a night of drinking.

The two Tari men, aged 34 and 42, were reportedly drunk since Thursday and were causing a nuisance at the Six-Mile settlement where they live.

The suspect, a shift worker at a security firm, had just got off a two-day shift and was in a bad mood at the time of the attack.

The man reportedly told police that he was frustrated with the two men who have a history of causing disturbances in the area.

The two men will be charged with disturbing the peace.

The suspect has been let off with a warning to next time call the police and not take matters into his own hands.
