ANGRY that he was asked to leave the premises for drunk and disorderly conduct, a Bulawayo man has been dragged to court for threatening to stab a Chicken Inn security guard.
Mpendulo Ncube is accused of drawing an okapi knife on the fast-food outlet security guard Langton Mushamiri after he told him to leave the premises.
This is after he had allegedly walked into Chicken Inn, situated at corner 8th Avenue and Jason Moyo Street, drunk.
He is accused of causing a rumpus at the outlet.
Ncube appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Nomagugu Maphosa facing a charge of assault, and was remanded in custody to 6 July to secure legal assistance.
Charges against him are that on 27 June 2022 at around 6pm at a Chicken Inn outlet, the accused entered the premises drunk.
Mushamiri approached Ncube and instructed him to leave the premises but he refused.
The security guard escorted the accused from the premises but Ncube drew an okapi knife from his pocket and threatened to stab him.
Mushamiri sought the assistance of his workmates and they managed to apprehend the accused and led him to the Bulawayo Central Police Station.
A case of assault was opened.
