Zimbabwe – Police are hunting for a man who robbed two women and raped one of them after they had gone for an all-night prayer on Muchinjikwa Mountain in Chinamhora, Mashonaland East at the weekend.
Reports are the women aged 34 and 33 were robbed of cash and cellphones before the man, who was armed with a knife, asked one of the victims to choose between being raped or killed.
The man allegedly raped the 34-year-old woman before running away.
He said the rape victim was taken to Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare for medical examination and investigations were underway.
He appealed to the public for information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect.
Inspector Chazovachiyi also urged members of the public to respect lockdown protocols and conduct their prayers at home without public gatherings.
Public gatherings including churches were banned when the government imposed the level 4 lockdown to curb the transmission of the coronavirus.
