A 36-year-old man from Mkoba suburb in Gweru was this week arraigned before the courts after he allegedly exposed his manhood to a Grade Two pupil.
Ronald Moyo, of house number 6186, Mkoba 19, Gweru, appeared before Gweru magistrate, Judith Taruvinga facing attempted rape charges.
Moyo allegedly dragged the minor to a bushy area where he showed her his private part but ran away after the complainant screamed for help.
State prosecutor, Gracious Rongai, told the court that on October 19, 2014 at around 1pm, the seven-year-old girl was playing with her friends near Ambassador Church in Mkoba 19.
Moyo went to the church and allegedly told the children that he wanted to “place his thing inside the minor's private part”.
The children ran away leaving the complainant who was allegedly dragged into a bushy area by the accused.
