A MAN who allegedly attacked another man with an empty beer bottle several times in the head appeared in court facing charges of attempted murder.

The attack resulted in the victim becoming unconscious and he is currently admitted at Harare Central Hospital nursing the wounds from the attack.

Elisha Madzinga is reported to have picked a fight with his victim in Waterfalls.

The misunderstanding got out of hand causing Madzinga to pick up a bottle and hit his victim on the head.

The State was opposed to him being granted bail based since he refused to give his permanent place of residence’s address and the State wants to verify the address that he gave.

Madzinga was also seen by several people assaulting his victim and the State fears that he might evade trial if he’s granted bail.

Further allegations are that he frequently visits the area that his victim and witnesses stay at and the State fears that he might interfere with or threaten the witnesses.

He returns to court on January 11.
