Montcalli was arraigned following his arrest at Edenville Estate, along Kiambu road on Sunday.

A video that went viral on social media showed Montcalli, a resident of Edenville Phase One, assaulting a Caucasian woman believed to be his neighbor.

The elderly foreign national, who is dressed in a red shirt and a blue pair of shorts, is seen slapping the woman who is standing in front of him while engaged in a simmering argument with two other people, among them a security guard who tried to contain him unsuccessfully.

It was unclear what provoked the heated exchange of words before Montcalli slapped her in presence of a security guard and neighbours.
