06.05.2005 LISTEN

Accra, May 6, GNA - A hairdresser, who squeezed the scrotum of her former husband exposing the testicles, on Friday appeared at a Circuit Court in Accra charged with causing harm.

Evelyn Mensah, the Hairdresser, pleaded not guilty.

The Court remanded her into prison custody to reappear on May 11. The case as presented by Chief Inspector Darfuor was that the husband, Mr Lucky Mensah Zornyira, a Mason residing at New Ashongman Estates, was married to Evelyn for 14 years. They, however, divorced about four years ago.

On April 12, this year at about 2200 hours Evelyn went to Mr Zornyira's house and started insulting him without any provocation.

Mr Zornyira asked Evelyn to leave his house, as most of the tenants in the house were asleep.

Prosecution said Evelyn refused and picked a shovel and attacked Mr Zornyira but some of the tenants and witnesses restrained her. Soon after, Evelyn held Mr Zornyira's genitals from behind and pulled them. Mr Zornyira shouted for help and was rescued by witnesses. A look at the genitals revealed that harm had been done to his scrotum exposing one of his testicles.

Prosecution said Mr Zornyira was rushed to the hospital where he was receiving treatment.

A report was made to the Police and Evelyn was arrested.
