A 17-year-old boy has appeared in court for assaulting a prostitute after she refused to offer him services. The minor, who cannot be named due to his age, appeared before magistrate Mr Tendai Mahwe facing assault charges.

Nzosera claimed she lost $50 during the attack.

The minor pleaded guilty to the charges and is set to return to court today for sentencing. Meanwhile, a Sakubva man will perform community service after he pleaded guilty to assaulting his friend in a dispute over cigarettes.
