“Brief facts are that during the midnight of that day, the named suspect broke into the complainant’s house and entered the bedroom where he allegedly stole the baby whilst the mother who is the complainant was fast asleep,” Katongo stated.
“As the suspect was leaving the bedroom, she woke up and shouted for help and the suspect was apprehended and after searching him, it was discovered that he had stolen the complainants baby which he hid in the coat he was wearing.”
Katongo stated that “After investigations it was revealed that the suspect intended to sell the baby at K7,000.00.
