An 18-year-old girl was left badly bruised after four men, who were travelling in a Honda Fit, kidnapped her in Plumtree and drove to Bulawayo where they locked her in a house and took turns to rape her for three consecutive days.
A source close to the incident said the four men, who are still at large, pounced on the 18-year-old woman while she was on a call with her boyfriend shortly after 6pm at her home in Plumtree on Monday this week.
The source went on to reveal that one of the four men grabbed the girl and bundled her into the back seat of their car.
“One of the guys shoved a piece of cloth into her mouth before wrapping her face with a towel. After that they drove to Bulawayo where they detained her at a house before they took turns to rape her for three consecutive days,” said a source.
The source went on to reveal that during those sexual assault days, the woman was given bread to eat and a little amount of water.
She was accompanied to the toilet.
“It was a terrible experience for a teenage girl because she was forced to relieve herself in front of one of the guys who was strictly guarding her,” said the source.
On day four, the four men dumped her in the city centre.
“A good Samaritan accompanied her to Bulawayo central police station where she made a report after which he gave her money to return to Plumtree,” said the source.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident.
