A Harare woman was assaulted to death by an illegal drug dealer and his friends who were accusing her of stealing some Chrystal methamphetamine drugs, commonly as mutoriro.
In another incident, two people were stabbed multiple times by suspects who were trying to extract information from them over the theft of a goat.
Police revealed the two incidents in their official Twitter handle Tuesday.

Meanwhile, police in Masvingo are appealing for information which may lead to the arrest of Ishmael Mota and Emmanuel Pagiwa who are wanted in connection with an attempted murder case which occurred on 18/12/21 at Maranda Business Centre, Mwenezi.
