A 62-YEAR-OLD man from Nkenyane area in Bubi District, Matabeleland North province, who has been terrorising women by grabbing or touching their breasts as they walked home from fetching water, has been arrested.
George Moyo, an alleged serial groper is accused of ambushing women from his area as they walked home from fetching water before reaching out and grabbing their breasts, with the most recent offence taking place on 12 and 13 March 2021 and the victims being two women aged 17 and 26.
Allegations against Moyo are that on 12 March 2021 and at around 10am, he landed himself in trouble when he allegedly indecently assaulted his 26-year-old neighbour. This was after he ambushed her on her way home from fetching water. It is reported that when he saw her, Moyo drew closer and fondled her breasts as she walked by.
As if that was not enough, the following day, Moyo using the same modus operandi, is accused of making similar assaults on a 17-year-old girl. He is alleged to have put his hand on her shoulder before he shoved it inside her dress and tried to fondle her breasts.
Sensing danger, the girl reportedly pushed him away before she ran away and alerted her parents, who later reported the matter to the police leading to Moyo’s arrest.
Following his arrest, it emerged that Moyo had also violated another woman, who is also his neighbour.
For groping his neighbours, Moyo was dragged before Bulawayo magistrate Rachel Mukanga charged with two counts of indecent assault.
He was not asked to plead and was remanded out of custody on $1 500 bail.- B-Metro
