A 12-year-old girl was s-assaulted by a guy who followed her home after being sent back by school officials for not wearing a necktie.
The victim had forgotten her neck tie, so the school sent her home to get it. Unfortunately for her, the suspect pounced on her, dragged her into the bush, and violated her.
The victim was only saved when a bystander stopped the suspect in his heinous deed.

Mr Chileshe said the Good samaritan then escorted the victim back to her home where the parents reported the incident to the police.
