Amsterdam Airbnb host accused of pushing South African down stairs Is arrested

By Carla Herreria,

An Airbnb host in Amsterdam accused of pushing a guest down a flight of stairs for missing her checkout time faces attempted murder charges.

Video of the confrontation went viral after the guest’s friend, Zanele Muholi, a popular South African artist and activist, posted it to Instagram on Saturday.

The video shows the host, a white male, telling Sibahle Steve Nkumbi, a South African filmmaker and student in Bern, Switzerland, to get out of his rental property.

The host then pushes Nkumbi, sending her head-first down a long staircase. She lands at the bottom, face-down and motionless.
