Police in Harare are investigating an armed robbery case in which a 38-year-old man lost US$3 865 cash and a cellphone to four armed robbery suspects on Monday, along Ceres Rd, Prospect in Waterfalls.
“The suspects who were travelling in a Honda Fit vehicle, approached the complainant who was walking and asked him for directions before dragging him into the vehicle,” Asst Comm Nyathi.
In a related case, police in Harare are also appealing for information which may assist in the investigation of a robbery case which occurred on Monday at Cranebrooke suburb, Ruwa.
Four armed robbers attacked a family at their house before stealing US$3 200 cash and six cellphones, among other valuables.
Police have since launched a manhunt for the robbers as they urge the public to avoid keeping or moving around with large amounts of cash as they might end up falling victim to criminals.
