Woman Raped In Front Of Her 7-Year-Old Son:
In a very sad development, police confirmed that a woman was robbed and raped by an unknown assailant in a maize field along Simon Mazorodze Road in the presence of her 7-year-old son
According to H-Metro the incident occurred after the woman and her son encountered transport problems and decided to walk towards ZBC near Mbare and were attacked by the unknown assailant.
Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Simon Chazovachii said a woman and her son were attacked by an unknown assailant wielding a knife at corner Simon Mazorodze and Willowvale Road during curfew hours.
Circumstances were that in the first incident a woman disembarked from a truck along Simon Mazorodze Road in the company of her seven-year-old son at corner Willowvale Road at around 20:00hrs.
She waited for transport to Budiriro and upon failing to find it she decided to walk towards Mbare near ZBC.
On her way, an unknown person grabbed her handbag and she shouted for help and the accused person produced a knife and ordered her to be silent.
She was dragged to a nearby maize field and her child cried and was also threatened with a knife and ordered not to cry.
The woman was raped once without protection in the sight of her son.
The accused person went on to search her handbag and went away with US$20, a white dress, her cellphone and a packet of tomatoes, said Insp Chazovachii.
In another similar incident, Inspector Chazovachii said another woman was gang-raped by four men while his husband watched.
He said the couple’s vehicle developed a mechanical fault at Marimba when a gang of four men appeared from nowhere and overpowered the husband and proceeded to take turns to rape the wife
Insp Chazovachii urged members of the public to adhere to the Lockdown curfew hours and avoid travelling at night as they may lead to such incidents.
As police, we are urging people to plan their journeys in a way that they travel during the day as well as complying to curfew orders to avoid such incidences, said Insp Chazovachii.
