Published DateLACONIA — A local man who is scheduled to be sentenced next month after being convicted by a jury for two counts of verbally threatening a city police officer was arrested Thursday night for allegedly pushing his pregnant girlfriend and slapping her 5-year-old daughter.
Abdul Kamara, 21, of 103 Blueberry Lane Apt. 44 is charged with two counts of simple assault and one count of obstructing the reporting of a crime.
Police said Kamara's girlfriend told them she came home to the apartment they share and got into a argument. Kamara allegedly tried to take the victim's cell phone away by pushing her into a door casing causing her to fall.
The victim told police she ran downstairs and called the police. While waiting for police he grabbed her phone again and slapped her daughter, after which he ran from the house.
Kamara appeared in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday by video camera yesterday and Judge Jim Carroll ordered him held on $5,000 cash-only bail. Carroll said he would consider a reduction in bail to $2,500 cash if Kamara agreed to wear a monitoring bracelet and the appropriate paperwork was filed with the court.
Kamara was convicted by a jury last month for his role in a September altercation with police that resulted in a Laconia Police officer suffering a broken nose. The jury found him guilty of two counts of criminal threatening for threatening the live and family of a second police officer.
Clerks said Kamara would likely be sentenced in April for the recent convictions.
