Shocking Robbery at Chikwanha VIP Bar in Chitungwiza, Suspect Appears in Court
A 47-year-old man from Chitungwiza has appeared in court over allegations of robbery and unlawful possession of camouflage uniforms. Robson Mhandu stands accused of stealing a car from a motorist and assaulting him at Chikwanha VIP Bar, leaving the victim with injuries all over his body.
On July 30, the complainant was sitting in his car at VIP bar, Chikwanha Shopping Centre, when three men approached him, opened the unlocked doors, and forced him out of the car. They then assaulted him and drove off in his car, leaving him behind. The car contained cash and a pair of Nike sneakers, reported Herald.
The victim reported the incident to ZRP Zengeza, and the car was later found abandoned along the Harare-Mahusekwa road. The complainant identified his stolen sneakers being worn by the accused person on July 31, leading to his arrest.
