Hitch-hiker stabbed, robbed

HARARE - A Harare man was on Tuesday left battling for his life after he was stabbed by the occupants of an unregistered private car he had hitch-hiked.

The culprits sped off with his property worth $1 500.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has since launched a manhunt for accused persons who were driving a white Honda Fit when they picked up the complainant who was on his way to the Central Business District.

“The ZRP is investigating a case of armed robbery which occurred in Harare on April 12, 2016 at around 0630hours,” ZRP spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said yesterday.

“A 32-year-old male adult boarded a white Honda Fit at Joshua Nkomo and Dieppe round-about in Harare going to the city centre. The motor vehicle had four occupants. When they reached Brooks Road in Braeside, one of the occupants grabbed the complainant by the neck and assaulted him several times with fists.

“The accused person then forcibly took property which includes an HP 635 laptop, Toshiba hard drive, power bank, a wallet containing $15, a golden watch and spectacles, all valued at $1 500.

“One of the accused stabbed the complainant on the thigh, before pushing him out of the vehicle before speeding off.

“The motor vehicle had no number plates. Police are urging members of the public to desist from boarding private or unregistered vehicles as they risk being mugged.

“Anyone with information which may lead to the arrest of the culprits can contact their nearest police station.”
