Whoever said that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned (or infuriated) may have had the right idea in mind. 30-year-old Evelin Gideon was released on bail of N$800 this week after she was charged with one count of malicious damage to property and one count of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Gideon is accused of grabbing hold of Joel Amunyala’s penis with the intention of causing him severe harm in an apparent fit of rage.
Magistrate Hileni Riana Kavara released Gideon on bail, with the condition that she has no contact, direct or indirect with her victim.
Court documents revealed that the 30-year-old was charged with malicious damage to property for breaking down the door to Amunyela’s shack with the intention to assault him. The door was valued at N$4500.
After she damaged his property, she then proceeded to grabbing hold of his penis, resulting in the second charge brought forth.
The alleged crime is said to have taken place in the Okundjonsavu location in Windhoek on 1st May, this year. It still remains unclear as to what caused Gideon’s apparent fit of rage.
The case was postponed to 21st August this year at the Katutura Magistrate court. The Prosecutor for the case is Maria Fatima Mendonsa.
