Manhunt For Three Rusape Armed Robbers Who Shot A Man On Saturday:
Police are still on a manhunt for three armed robbers who are moving around in police uniforms. The three allegedly shot and killed a 35-year-old Rusape man.
The three suspects are reported to have raided the deceased’s house along Golp Avenue and shot him five times.
One of the suspects was wearing a police uniform while his two accomplices were in civilian attire.
They did not steal anything after shooting the victim, whose name is yet to be released.
Sources close to the investigations yesterday said no arrests have been made and the search for the suspects is on.
A team of detectives from Harare and Rusape have since been activated to probe the matter.
So far, the police only have information that the suspected robbers went to the victim’s house where they knocked at the gate before two of them jumped over a security wall to get into the yard, before confronting the victim’s 65-year-old father and ordered him to sit down, to which he complied.
The deceased later approached the suspected robbers and was also ordered to sit down but refused. They then shot him five times before they fled without taking anything.
His body was taken to Rusape General Hospital mortuary for post-mortem.
In other news, police are also looking for the six armed men who stormed a security company in Harare, disarmed guards, robbed the premises and raped a female guard.
The robbers got away with cell phones, cash and a television set.
The case occurred in Whitecliff on December 23, 2020, at about 3 am when the six unidentified men stormed a security services premises and disarmed security guards on duty before stealing various items including cash, cellphones and a television set.
One of the security guards was blindfolded and raped.
