Country Bakayawo (31) was not asked to plead before Concession magistrate Nyasha Machirori, who remanded him in custody to October 24.
The State alleges that on October 10, Bakayawo, of Oude Kraal farm, Concession, at around 0010 hours, proceeded to the complainant’s house and managed to open the door before taking the girl, who cannot be named, to a nearby forest.
The minor screamed as he attempted to rape her and was heard by Emmanuel Round, a security guard at the farm, who went to investigate and apprehended the accused.
Munyaradzi Nengomasha represented the State and opposed bail, saying Bakayawo was a flight risk.
