A 25-year-old man has been arrested for kidnapping and stripping naked, a four-year-old juvenile whom he later dumped near a mountain in Shamva.
Police revealed the shock incident in their official Twitter handle Saturday.
Said the police, “The ZRP confirms the arrest of Tatenda Amon (25) in connection with a case of kidnapping which occurred at Ratherdale Farm, Shamva on 03/11/21.
“The suspect allegedly kidnapped a female juvenile (4) from home and took her to a nearby mountain where he removed the victim’s clothes before dumping her whilst crying.
“The suspect left his hat and a bottle of beer (green) on the scene which led to his identification.
Police said the victim was taken to hospital for a medical examination, amid suspicions of possible sexual violation on the minor.
Meanwhile, in another shock incident, police say they are “investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a body of a male adult along Harare–Chirundu Road near Makuti on 03/12/21”.
Police said, “the body was lying on its back facing upwards along the road with hands tied on the front by the stomach with a shoelace”.
“Bruises were noted on the neck, stomach, back and left foot. There were some blisters forming maggots on the back.
“Police suspect transnational crime activities as two small papers with South African and Zambian cellphone numbers were recovered while the body resembles a foreign national, especially of Ethiopian or Somalian origin,” said the police via their official Twitter handle.
