One of the deceased friend who also sought anonymity told Baraka FM, that Stanley started quarreling with the attendant when she asked for payment.

“We had even settled his bill so I don’t understand why he went further to attack the attendant,” the friend said.

The incident occurred at Kona Mtongwe area near Docks within Mombasa County.

The assaulted attendant was rushed to Coast General where she is receiving treatment.
