A Windhoek woman is facing the heat in court after she charged at another woman with the intention of biting a chunk off her body.
Zelda Xoagus (26) who appeared in the Katutura Magistrate Court last week for a routine appearance is still to answer to her assault case for the attack on Albertina Goa-Eises on 3 September this year.
The two were allegedly arguing when Xoagus slapped Goa-Eises in the face and then bit her. When Goa-Eises came loose from the grip of Xoagus’s teeth, she was hit on the head.
Although Goa-Eises was fortunate to have walked away without serious injuries, Xoagus is now facing assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm charges.
She was released from the Wanaheda Police Station after she paid the N$300 bail that was granted to her, with the condition that she does not make neither direct nor indirect contact with the complainant.
She will be making another appearance in court on 22 November this year after her case was postponed.
