There was drama in Masvingo when a group of drug-abusing rural boys assaulted a police officer before proceeding to sexually molest his wife as he watched helplessly.
The police officer, whose name has been withheld to protect the identity of his wife, was ambushed by the rowdy gang near Morgenster Mission, according to the Daily News.
Worship Chiteure and Talent Mahanya are alleged to have been the leaders of the gang.
Chitaure is reported to have confronted the police officer hurling profanities at him before assaulting him.
Mahanya then confronted the cop’s wife and fondled her breasts and buttocks while shouting vulgar words.
The cop has since taken the rowdy youths to court where he is demanding $600 000 damages for being humiliated and having his reputation and self-esteem violated by Mahanya and Chitaure.
According to the court records,sometime in February last year, Chiteure, Mahanya and other other accomplices assaulted the police officer and sexually molested his wife in fields near Morgenster Mission.
“The defendants, or one or more of them acting in common purpose as a riotous group, wrongfully, unlawfully and without any justifiable cause or provocation, assaulted the first plaintiff and sexually molested the second plaintiff at a public place near Morgenster Mission,” reads the summons.
”The assault and indecent assault occurred in a public place within the view of members of the public. Chiteure and Mahanya were abusing drugs as a group of rural boys while camping illegally in the cop’s fields.
The matter is still pending.
