A 28-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested for allegedly fondling his neighbours’ buttocks at a market stall in Budiriro.
Benjamin Mokwaya pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Mbare magistrate Isabel Nyoni charged with indecent assault.
Mokwaya will be back in court on February 19 for trial.
The State, represented by Sybil Makumborenga, heard that on December 21 last year at around 8pm, the complainant who was with her mother approached the accused person who was selling fish at a market stall.
The complainant then requested for the reduction of the price of the fish and this did not go well with Mokweya.
He suddenly became violent, insulting the complainant and fondled her buttocks.
The victim lodged a complaint with the police leading to Mokweya’s arrest.
