He said, ‘’I was seriously drunk and saw a woman in the night walking along the road alone. I approached her for sex and she started abusing me. We started abusing ourselves and I immediately pounced on her and she started struggling with me to free herself. I was seriously drunk at that time.’’
“I don’t know whether I was having sex with her but she was on the ground with me. I did not hit her with any object but (it) is like I had sex with her for one round. We were both on the ground when a man flashed a light on me and I ran away.
