A man has been remanded in custody after he was arraigned for attempted rape of his granddaughter who freed herself by squeezing his testicles.
The incident happened in Bhekani Line in Ntabazinduna, Matabeleland North province in Zimbabwe.
Reports said that on the 8th of February 2021, the girl was cleaning her room, not knowing that her grandfather was peeping through the window. He allegedly saw her and stormed into the bedroom and grabbed her.
The teenager successfully resisted him by violently grabbing his testicles and squeezing them hard.
The Form One girl gave her grandfather a painful lesson when she reportedly gripped one of his testicles with her sharp nails as he was allegedly trying to sexually assault her in her bedroom.
After being attacked, the grandfather screamed for help while begging for forgiveness.
While grabbing her, he forcibly fondled her breasts and took off her clothes and underwear. In the process the grandfather is also alleged to have unzipped his trousers and pulled out his manhood.
The girl is alleged to have wrestled with him and at the height of the struggle, she grabbed his testicles and squeezed them so hard that he wailed for help.
After thwarting her grandfather’s evil move, the girl is alleged to have escaped, leaving him lying helpless on the floor. She went to her grandmother’s bedroom where she narrated the nasty ordeal to her.
The matter was reported to the police leading to the man’s arrest.
For that offence of attempting to defile her granddaughter, the man was brought before the court and he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Nomasiko Ndlovu.
He was not asked to plead to a charge of attempted rape and was remanded in custody to 23 April 2021.
