POLICE are looking for four women who sexually molested a 29-year-old man they had offered a lift from Mbudzi roundabout in Harare to the city centre. The women allegedly drugged their victim until he passed out before they abused him. The incident happened last week Monday at around 11pm.The four women were travelling in a Toyota Raum.
Police chief spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed the incident yesterday.
She said Batsirai Madzingira disembarked from a bus from Masvingo and waited for transport into the city centre.
“A Toyota Raum, which had four female adults including the driver, then offered him a lift. He was told to sit between two of the suspects who were in the back seat,” she said.
After driving for a few metres, the driver told him to pay $1 and he complied.
Madzingira was later offered a coke by the driver and he refused.
“One of the women produced a knife and threatened to stab him if he resisted. Madzingira drank the coke and became dizzy. During the process, it is alleged that the two women who were at the back started removing his clothes while he was unconscious. According to a report made, Madzingira does not know what happened thereafter,” said Snr Asst Comm Charamba.
The following day at around 6am, Madzingira gained consciousness.
He discovered that he had been dumped near the flyover along Simon Mazorodze Road.
He also noticed some blood stains and semen on his pants.
The women also got away with his satchel containing two pairs of trousers, two T-shirts and $19 cash.
He reported the matter to the police.
Madzingira was referred to Harare Hospital for medical examination.
This is not the first time such cases have been reported to the police.
In September last year, two women allegedly indecently assaulted a 29-year-old man at gunpoint after offering him a lift from Magunje Growth Point to Karoi.
The incident occurred on September 4 at around 9am, when the complainant (name withheld) boarded a grey Toyota Raum without registration plates.
The vehicle was being driven by a middle-aged woman.
She was in the company of another woman.
They offered the man a lift at Magunje Growth Point pretending to be travelling to Karoi town.
When they approached the 208 kilometre peg along the Harare-Chirundu Road, the driver stopped the vehicle purportedly to check for a tyre puncture.
They then resumed the journey before turning into a bushy area where they drove for about 10 kilometres.
One of the women produced a pistol and ordered the complainant to swallow a blue tablet.
The women took turns to have unprotected sexual intercourse with the man without his consent.-Herald
