ZIMBABWE – Brian Chiruka of No.6267 Overspill Epworth was facing charges of indecent assault before Harare magistrate Francis Mapfumo.

Chiruka also had three months suspended for five years of good behaviour.

Prosecutor Panashe Bwoni proved that on December 26 the victim was having her radio repaired at a local workshop in company of her husband when Chiruka came and grabbed her buttock.

The victim did not say anything as she thought he did so by mistake.

The court heard that Chiruka came for the second time and tapped the victim’s buttock who then confronted him why he had done so.

The victim’s husband also intervened and asked Chiruka why he was behaving in such a minor.

Chiruka responded that the victim was his friend before he fondled her again which angered the victim’s husband.

Chiruka exchanged words with the victim’s husband who he attempted to attack before he was stopped by members of the public.
