POLICE in Marondera, Mashonaland East province, have launched a manhunt for three female suspects who allegedly took turns to rape a man at gunpoint near Chihota.

The suspects, allegedly driving a blue Honda Fit, also robbed the complainant (name withheld) of his money and belongings.

Provincial police spokesperson Inspector Simon Chazovachi confirmed the incident.

“We are appealing to anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspects to assist us. We also urge the public to consider using public transport to avoid such incidences,” Chazovachi said.

According to police, on February 22, the complainant boarded the vehicle at Mbudzi traffic circle on Harare on his way to Beatrice.

The man was then admitted at Beatrice Hospital where he is being treated.
