A 63-year-old Kwekwe man has been arraigned before the courts for attempted rape and indecently assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
Sabelo Moyo allegedly offered the girl a lift to her residence and attempted to rape her, but the minor escaped.
Moyo appeared before Kwekwe magistrate Samukeliso Gumbo where the State, led by Kudakwashe Mazorodze, alleged that on 20th of October 2020, Moyo offered the minor a lift to her residence when he saw that it was dark and the kid was wondering all alone near his work place.
The old man proceeded to where the girl lived but changed the route usually used.
The court heard that he forced himself on the girl by trying to caress her while the child screamed.
The court also heard that on the first attempt Moyo parked his car along the road and started sucking and fondling the girl’s breast.
On the second account, he drove to a more private place and forced his hands inside the girl’s panties.
Moyo then unzipped his pair of trousers and instructed the girl to come to the front seat and play with his manhood and that’s when the girl managed to escape.
The matter came to light after the girl escaped and reported the matter to her sister and grandmother who in turn reported the matter to the police leading to Moyo’s arrest.
