Man wanted for allegedly touching woman’s breast

A warrant of arrest has been issued by the Waigani Committal Court for a Chimbu man, John Gore over allegations of touching a woman’s breast without her consent.

Magistrate Mekeo Gauli issued the warrant for Gore on Thursday after he failed to appear in court on four different occasions since he was allowed on bail.

Gore has not been back to court since he first appeared in court on Nov 29, 2016 where his charge was read and explained to him.  

He was arrested and charged last year with unlawful indecent touching and allowed bail at K300.

His bail was forfeited on Thursday after police prosecution asked the court to issue a warrant for his arrest.

The warrant is returnable for review on Feb 7.

Gore was arrested over allegations that he inappropriately touched and squeezed a woman’s breast on the morning of Oct 2, 2016 at the Kila Barracks in Port Moresby.

The offense allegedly took place in a house while the woman was mopping the floor.
