A Mbare man has been granted $80 bail for allegedly touching his neighbour’s bu_ttocks following an argument over a curtain.
Tatenda Mudimu, 31, pleaded not guilty to the charges of assault when he appeared before Mbare Magistrate Isabel Nyoni.
During cross examination Mudimu said his intentions were to stop a fight only and the complainant was fabricating stories.
The State represented by Sybil Makumborenga alleges that on January 5 at around 10pm, the complainant was fighting with Mudimu’s wife over a curtain that separates their room.
That’s when Mudimu intervened in the fight and pushed the complainant onto the bed, touched her bu_ttocks whilst his wife was beating her on the mouth.
Dhaure lodged a complaint with the police leading to Mudimu’s arrest.
