Man hears noise from mom’s room, rushes there & screams after he found 3 gunmen trying to rape her


A BULAWAYO woman who was attacked and robbed by three armed robbers had to thank her son who screamed when they were about to rap_e her as that stopped them and sent them fleeing.

The horror attack happened in Nkulumane suburb on Monday at around 2am at a house where the woman stays with her son.

A family insider told B-Metro that the trio had masked themselves with balaclavas and they pounced at the house while the victim was asleep.

They smashed a window to her bedroom — two thugs got into the bedroom while one of them remained outside.

“They were armed with a firearm, iron bar and a knife. They awoke the woman before they slapped her on the face and warned her not to scream.

They demanded cash and she surrendered US$20, R620 and a cellphone,” said the source.

Still they wanted to carry out a sickening se_xual attack on her but somehow her son came to her rescue.

“Her 21-year-old son was sleeping in his bedroom and was awoken by a noise and sensed it could be robbers. He screamed causing the thugs who were about to rape her to flee. He then phoned a neighbour who swiftly came,” said the source.

Later that day the woman reported the incident at Nkulumane Police Station.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident. Insp Ncube appealed to anyone who could have information about the trio’s whereabouts to contact any nearest police station or may contact them on 292260358 for a tip-off.
