A convict who escaped from Chikurubi Prison in November last year while serving a six-year jail term for armed robbery has been arrested for yet another armed robbery case.

Mirikai Pirikisi aged 38 was arrested in connection with an armed robbery case in Beitbridge where he and his accomplice shot an illegal money changer before robbing him of cash and a car.

The two were, however, unlucky after they were apprehended by the public and assaulted before the police arrived.

Pirikisi’s accomplice, died upon admission at hospital due to injuries he sustained from the assault.
