A 34-YEAR-OLD soldier has been arrested for allegedly forcing his 15-year-old neighbour to play with his manhood until he ejaculated on her hands.
The soldier is based at Induna Barracks and that is where the indecent assault incident occurred.
Circumstances are that on 12 July this year, the 15-year-old teenage girl left her phone charging at the offender’s house.
It is said when she returned to collect it, the soldier grabbed her by her waist and pushed her into his bedroom. He then locked the door before he stripped naked.
He warned the minor against screaming and threatened to kill her if ever she did so.
He then forced the teenager to play with his manhood until he ejaculated on her hands. After the act the minor left for her home where upon arrival she narrated the ordeal to her mother.
Her mother did not report the matter to the police.
The source said: “Her mother told cops that they did not report back in July because they didn’t want to emotionally and psychologically disturb the minor as she had to go to school.”
Police officers from Queens Park police station arrested the offender.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube could not be reached for a comment.
