A RESIDENT of Warren Park suburb in Harare was stripped of her bra and blouse by three men who had offered her a lift into town. They proceeded to rob her before kicking her out of the vehicle.
Police have confirmed the incident which took place inside the National Sports Stadium near the suburb this Saturday.
The 29-year-old woman boarded an unregistered blue Honda Fit vehicle with the three men at 10th Street in Warren Park early yesterday. The understanding was that they would drop her in Harare CBD.
However, the suspects diverted the route into the National Sports Stadium where they took off the woman’s blouse and bra.
“They stole US$143 and ZWL$ 3800 and ordered the victim to disembark as they sped off,” said Police on its Twitter account.
In a separate but related development, a 35-year-old Harare resident yesterday boarded a black unregistered Nissan Porte vehicle with three occupants at Chadcombe destined for the CBD. This was at around 6.30AM.
The pirate taxi crew drove him into town but proceeded to rob him of cash amounting to US$1 500 at Corner Samora Machel and Chinhoyi Street.
“The ZRP urges the public to be wary of using private and unregistered vehicles as means of transport,” said Police in a statement.
