Virgin Active withdraws charges against alleged masturbator

#STELLENBOSCH: In the matter that went viral on Twitter recently over a Virgin Active patron allegedly masturbating in full view of other patrons has reached a limp end.

The criminal case against the man who was banned from the gym for his act ended prematurely on Thursday when Virgin Active withdrew charges.

The 18-year-old suspect was due to appear in the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court after the gym laid charges of sexual assault.

But the man’s lawyer, William Fullard, told TimesLIVE charges had been dropped when Virgin Active agreed a settlement with his client before his court appearance.

The gym laid charges a month ago after saying it had banned the man for life. He was allegedly caught in the act by another gym member who recorded and posted the video on Twitter.
