A MAN from Mahatshula North in Bulawayo has been locked up in remand prison after he allegedly sodomised a 15-year-old boy while he was asleep.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the minor, was not asked to plead to aggravated indecent assault charge when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Abednico Ndebele yesterday.
Ndebele remanded him in custody to September 4 and advised him to apply to the High Court for bail.
The court heard that sometime in June at 9pm, the man, employed as a driver at Fairbridge Police Camp, went for a beer drink.
On his return he entered the kitchen where the boy staying at the same house, was sleeping. He allegedly woke the minor up and asked him to bring mealie meal to his room. The man later offered the boy a place to sleep.
He got into the same blankets with the boy and in the middle of the night he allegedly sodomised him.
