A female police officer, who could not resist the temptation of fondling another woman’s breasts, was yesterday arraigned before the courts facing indecent assault charges.
After a beer drinking binge, Pauline Janhi, 25, of 27 Manyame Park Drive, allegedly jumped and grabbed Rudo Mushongera’s breasts.
The two had allegedly met in the toilet at a local pub. The officer appeared before magistrate Victoria Mushamba facing indecent assault and assault charges.
Prosecutor Nyikadzino Machingura alleged that on June 20, Mashongera was drinking beer with friends at Ligi Bar, along Robert Mugabe Road and went to the toilet to relieve herself.
She met Janhi who was dressing up after using the toilet. Janhi reportedly jumped and grabbed Mashongera by the breasts with both hands and started fondling her.
An uninterested Mashongera tried to shove off Janhi but was allegedly told to cool down because “there was nothing new” in the act.
Mashongera then told the accused she was not interested in the act before leaving the toilet.
Undeterred by the toilet snub, Janhi approached the complainant, pushed and started shouting at her. After she had been restrained by a security guard she went downstairs and stood by the entrance waiting for Mashongera to leave the bar.
When Mashongera was leaving, Janhi then allegedly jumped and slapped her in the face.
Janhi also bit Mashongera’s finger only to be rescued by a taxi driver Sebastian Kwenda who accompanied her to make a police report.
