Man punches women for refusing with phone numbers

A man from Masvingo slapped and punched two women after they refused to give him their cellphone numbers, moments after he had complimented them for their body structures.

This emerged when Paul Mutero (27) was convicted by Masvingo magistrate Ms Conceptor Ngwerume of assault last week. Although he pleaded not guilty to the assault charge, the magistrate found him guilty and ordered him to pay a fine of $1 200 or face two months in jail.

Prosecuting, Ms Heather Mhlanga told the court that on 17 October, Mutero met two women, Miss Shine Mudzanga and Miss Tatenda Mudavanhu in the city at about 7pm. Mutero then started commenting on their body structures but they ignored him.

He then asked for their contact numbers but the women again ignored him.

The court heard that Mutero got angry for being ignored and grabbed Miss Mudzanga and slapped her once on the left cheek.

Miss Mudavanhu tried to restrain Mutero but he hit her on the nose and left rib, the court heard.

Mutero only stopped assaulting the women when he saw an approaching car and fled.

The case was reported at Chesvingo police who launched a manhunt and arrested Mutero. — Sunday News
