Man attempts to bribe traffic officer

02 May 2019 | Crime

A Chinese national appeared on a charge of bribery in the Walvis Bay Magistrate's Court Monday.

According to Deputy Commissioner Erastus Ikuyu of the Erongo police, Bian Young Quan (39) attempted to bribe a municipal traffic officer on Friday.

“He tried bribing the officer with N$200 after he failed to produce a valid driver's licence.”

Quan was granted N$10 000 bail which he paid after his appearance and his case was postponed to 25 July for a decision from the prosecutor-general's office. He appeared before Magistrate John Liwoyo Sindano and was represented by Liesl Heyman. Fidel Wakudumo appeared for the State.

Iikuyu also confirmed that a 33-year-old woman lost her life in a motor vehicle accident on the notorious B2 road.

“The next of kin of Florida Talana Areses were notified and her body was taken to the Walvis Bay police mortuary for postmortem examination. A case of culpable homicide and reckless/or negligent driving is being investigated.

According to Iikuyu the vehicle experienced a tyre burst 15 kilometres before Omaruru on Sunday afternoon.

Two other passengers (a woman, 23, and a five-year-old child) sustained slight injuries. The driver escape unharmed.

The Erongo police are also investigating a case of rape and assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm. A 28-years-old cognitively challenged woman was raped during the early morning hours of Saturday.

“The lady was about to go home from a bar in Usab location in Karibib when an unknown suspect allegedly invited her to another bar and offered to buy her a beer. The assailant, who is unknown and at large, pulled the victim to an area next to a railway line where he assaulted and raped her. She was taken to the Karibib clinic for medical treatment.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect can contact Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu at 081 246 4757 or Detective Warrant Officer Simson Nghiteeka at 081 348 6869.
