A man is in trouble after he attempted to insert a knife into a 10-year-old girl's privates.
The man, (name withheld to protect the victim), is alleged to have attempted to do so after making a 'feast' of the hapless girl. It is reported that the man is the landlord where the girl and her mother stayed.
On the day in question, it is reported that the girl was left in the custody of the man by her mother who had gone to the city centre. Taking advantage of the trust bestowed upon him, the man is said to have thought it wise to quench his sexual zest.
The landlord is alleged to have called the young girl who was playing with friends, to the house. The girl is understood to have taken time to respond to the call which forced the man to call her again. The girl reportedly asked the man what he wanted before getting inside the house.
Within seconds of getting inside, the suspect is said to have locked the door and told her that she was going nowhere. The girl screamed but a slap in the face kept her quiet. He allegedly fondled the girl's privates, saying that he wanted to 'eat them'. As per his threats, the seemingly ruthless man forced himself on the innocent girl.
The man was caught and remanded before a Zimbabwean court. His actions were deemed abnormal by the magistrate who ordered that he should be taken for a medical check up as stated under the Mental Health Act.
