Johannesburg - A woman appeared in the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Thursday for throwing boiling water at her boyfriend, Eastern Cape police said.

Captain Jackson Manatha said the matter was postponed to 25 July and the 38-year-old woman was released on a warning.

Manatha said the woman threw a pot filled with boiling water at the man's face.
