The Zimbabwe Republic Police is appealing to members of the public to assist them with information on three women who are reportedly on a spree of raping men.
Acting officer commanding police Harare province Assistant Commissioner Angeline Guvamombe said the women were on the loose, terrorising men and raping them. She was speaking at the Mbare District Awards of Excellence in Policy, where she was the guest of honour.
“Allow me as well to use this platform to appeal to members of the public to pass any information to the police regarding three women who have gone on a spree of kidnapping and indecently assaulting young men around town,” said Guvamombe.
“The women drive in poshy cars and offer a lift to their victims before spraying some liquid substance on the men’s faces. Once the victim is drowsy the women take the victim to a secluded place or house where they force him to be intimate with them. I want to warn these criminals that the net is drawing closer,” added Guvamombe.
Harare police provincial spokesperson Inspector James Sabau added that two men had so far fallen victim.
“The three women we are looking for will be charged with kidnapping and aggravated indecent assault,” said Sabau.
On July 27, the trio allegedly approached a male in his 30’s near Larfarge Cement in Mabvuku and ordered him to get into the Mercedes Benz they were driving in and took him to an unknown destination. They then allegedly gave him a tablet and took turns to have sex with him.
The second man was picked up along Samora Machel Avenue and Chinhoyi Street where he wanted to board a commuter omnibus to Norton.
The women were reportedly travelling in a male-driven maroon Toyota. When they arrived at the Warren Park roundabout, the driver allegedly changed the route and proceeded to Warren Park shops, saying he wanted to pick up someone.
When they got to an open space before the shops one of the passengers in the front seat is said to have pulled out a pistol and pointed it to the victim before tying his face and took him to an unknown destination.
“He was taken into a room where the women allegedly took turns to rape him,” said Sabau.
