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.
The court further alleges that Moyo removed his trousers to knee level showing his private organ to the little girl.
The girl who cheated death due to shock of the creature she had never seen in her entire life, however screamed for help and in panic Moyo ran away from the scene.
The minor met a resident from the same suburb to whom she narrated her ordeal, while her heart was reportedly beating so fast. The man in turn alerted the complainant’s mother.
A report was made to the police leading to the arrest of the suspect.
Taruvinga remanded Moyo in custody to Thursday for trial.
