Man hits armed robber with a car and disables him. The suspected armed robber, identified as Obey Mhuru of 3419 Makondo, Chiredzi, is now admitted under police guard at Beitbridge District Hospital after experiencing back, facial and numerous other body injuries.
A would-be victim of armed robbery in Beitbridge hit the AK-47-wielding assailant with a car, disabling him until he was arrested. Nigel Moyo, a resident of the border town, had arrived home when he saw a stranger carrying an AK-47 gun in his yard after midnight last Friday.
Moyo accelerated towards the stranger and hit him with a car, trapping him underneath the vehicle. A police officer who attended the scene told NewsDay that the assailant was rendered immobile until the police arrived. Said the officer:
He was dragged by the car for about 40-50 metres and was dumped outside the gate. My brother then went to get the police and upon their return, they found Mhuru lying outside the gate with his gun next to him.
After rendering him immobile, he drove to the police and Mhuru to the hospital. Mhuru disclosed that he had stolen the gun from a car in Baobab in the town.
