Joseph Teophelus, 26, was arrested on 24th of last month and charged with assault under the Domestic Violence Act, crimen injuria and defamation of character.
He and his girlfriend had got into an argument earlier that day after which he bit her fingers. He then continued to verbally assaulted the woman, saying she is HIV-positive while she is not.
When he appeared in court this week, he was granted a N$300 bail on condition that he does not make contact with the victim. The case was postponed to 26th of this month while investigations continue.
