Two sisters staying at a house in South View Extension in Gweru were on February 18, 2019 raped by two men before they were robbed of cash and valuables.
The rapists went away with 10 cellphones, $1 500 bond notes, US$2 200 and an HP Laptop.
Although Midlands Police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko could not confirm the incident, The Mirror has details of the case made under ZRP Senga RRB number 3719043 on February 18, 2019.
“We haven’t received that case as of now but l will check with other relevant departments and get back to you,” said Goko.
The report indicates that on February 18, 2019 at around 4am, two unknown accused persons broke the complainant’s window pane and gained entry into the house armed with a metal rod and a knobkerrie.
One of the accused proceeded to the first complainant’s room and demanded cash but the latter said she did not have any. The two searched the room and found $50 and a Samsung cellphone.
One of the accused removed the first complainant’s blankets and forced her to remove her night dress. He threatened to pull her legs apart using a metal rod and had unprotected sex with her once without her consent. This happened while his colleague was standing by the door.
After the act the accused persons covered the complainant with a blanket, switched off the lights and proceeded to the next girl’s room.
They woke the second complainant up and again demanded cash. One of the accused raped her after she said that she had no money.
The suspects then searched the whole house and took 10 cellphones, $1 500 bond notes, US$2200 which were in complainant number 2’s handbag and an HP Laptop.
The two accused persons left the house and went away unnoticed.
