Actor Kenneth Nkosi reportedly handed himself over to police and is set to appear in the Johannesburg magistrates court on Thursday on assault charges

According to Daily Sun, Kenneth spent the night in the Jo’burg central police station holding cells.

The actor was arrested and charged after a young woman opened a case against him over an incident that allegedly occurred at the Black Ant Lounge in Newtown last Friday.

The victim’s friend, Puly exposed the actor in a string of scathing messages on Twitter. In one of her tweets, Puly who apparently witnessed the alleged incident claimed that Kenneth assaulted the woman after she refused to give in to his advances.

“What I saw on Friday at BlackAnt Lounge in Newtown just after 10pm Kenneth Nkosi is an abuser, he assaulted someone I know because she refused to give him attention. Men are not used to rejection. He then followed her into the ladies’ restrooms… & continued violating her,” tweeted @PulyBeast.
