ZRP: Robbery gangs offering lifts on the rise in Harare


ZRP: Robbery gangs offering lifts on the rise in Harare. The police also report that another Harare man was robbed by robbers using a Toyota Wish last week.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has reported that robbery gangs offering lifts are on the rise in Harare after two women were last week robbed and r@ped after being offered lifts by armed robbers in unregistered Toyota Wish vehicles.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said police were investigating Harare r@pe incidents and robberies committed by gangs using silver or white Toyota Wishes. He said last Thursday at 11.45 am, a 24-year-old man was robbed of a cellphone and cash, all valued at US$487, after boarding a silver Toyota Wish that had men already inside at Newlands roundabout. Asst Comm Nyathi said:

On the same day at around noon, a woman aged 21 was r@ped and robbed of US$70, $320 and other valuables after boarding an unregistered silver Toyota Wish along Chiremba Road, Hatfield.

The next day at around 11.45 am, another woman aged 23 was also raped after boarding an unregistered white Toyota Wish with two men aboard near Mufakose High 1, on her way to Budiriro.

Asst Comm Nyathi repeated warnings to the public not to move around with large amounts of cash as they might fall prey to criminals.
