A Bindura man was assaulted using a braai stand and a stone when he had gone to collect his debt.

The matter came to light when Blessing Chabowoka (41) stood before Bindura Magistrate Moreblessing Makati facing assault charges.

Prosecutor Sheilla Maribha told the court that on the aforementioned date Gilbert Ngiriyawo (31) of 444 Nyathi street Chipadze proceeded to Ernest Sumbe's house who owed him some money, where the accused was.

Ngiriyawo knocked on the door and the accused came out.

The accused asked Ngiriyawo why he was knocking on the door and he replied saying he wanted to see Sumbe.

Ngiriyawo asked the accused why he was asking him such questions yet he was not the owner of the place.

That did not go down well with the accused who then charged towards Ngiriyawo who started back-paddling.

In a fit of rage, the accused picked two stones and threw them to Ngiriyawo one after the other, but fortunately, he was not hit.

The accused picked another stone and hit Ngiriyawo on the head and he fell to the ground.

Chabowoka went on to lift a braai with which he hit Ngiriyawo on the thigh before bypassers refrained.

Ngiriyawo sustained a cut on the head and on the thigh.

The accused was remanded to April 26.
