A woman from Cowdray Park suburb in Bulawayo was left horrified after two unknown men who are on the run allegedly robbed her of her cash before taking turns to rape her at knife point.
A family insider said on Saturday last week and at around midnight while the 22-year-old woman was sleeping, two unknown men stormed into her bedroom.
“She was dead asleep when two unknown men woke her up, one of them placed a knife on her throat while demanding cash. She didn’t waste their time as she pointed to the wardrobe and told them to take it from her jacket,” said the insider.
The family insider added: “One of the unknown men took R50 and US$2 as well as two cell phones, a Mobicel and a Nokia and went outside.”
The other guy remained ransacking the room and stumbled upon a handbag with cash inside.
“He took R1 000 and $500,” said the source.
After taking the cash he turned to the lady and threatened to kill her.
“He called his partner in crime and they took turns to rape her. After that they left with the “loot” leaving her lying on the bed”.
Bulawayo deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele confirmed the incident:
“I can confirm that we are handling a case of unlawful entry, robbery and rape that happened in Cowdray Park suburb.
