Two Men Robbed Of US$17k While Counting The Money In Their Vehicle
TWO Bulawayo men lost US$17 000 and R40 000 to three armed robbers who attacked them while they were counting the money in their vehicle.
Police national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident which occurred last Friday at around 3PM along Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Street between 11th and 12th Avenue.
“I can confirm that we recorded an armed robbery case which occurred in the Bulawayo CBD on Friday afternoon when two men lost US$17 000 and R40 000.
The complainants were counting money while in a Nissan Tilda vehicle when they were approached by three unknown suspects who were armed with pistols.
Ass Comm Nyathi said the robbers then demanded cash from the complainants while threatening to shoot them, The Chronicle reports.
The complainants surrendered the cash to the suspects who then fled in a Honda Fit vehicle registration number AEI2641.
Asst Comm Nyathi said investigations were underway although he warned members of the public against carrying around large sums of money and engaging in illegal cash transactions.
He added that this case could be one of those scenarios where people were engaged in illegal deals inside the vehicle and ended up attracting criminals.
In other news, iHarare had reported that a 73-year-old man reportedly kidnapped and extorted US$120 000 from a cashier who was employed by a Ponzi scheme firm in Borrowdale, Harare.
Ackim Hunda was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare Magistrate Judith Taruvinga charged with kidnapping and extortion.
