#173,587 — A man has been charged with indecent assault following the rescue of a South African boy who had allegedly been held captive in a dark room for thirteen years. One day he unintentionally snatches a bag from a girl. His wife thinks he does not want to go on with the marriage. At twenty, his coach says, he is like a five-speed engine with no second gear.
