Nhiwatiwa turned himself in on August 20, 2019, to fellow authorities and was arrested shortly after the mother of a 12-year-old girl accused him of exposing his penis and urinating on her daughter while recording the act on his smartphone, Sputnik reported.
According to prosecutors, the young girl was waiting for a school bus in Cleveland when Nhiwatiwa drove up close to the sidewalk and asked if she needed a ride to school. He then drove off after she repeatedly refused the ride but then returned – phone in hand – and proceeded to urinate on the 12-year-old.
Nhiwatiwa, a five-year veteran of the police force, pleaded guilty to felony charges of third-degree attempted kidnapping, fourth-degree felony pandering obscenity and fourth-degree felony disseminating harmful material to a juvenile, as well as a misdemeanor charge of endangering children.
