A Bulawayo man has gone on the run after he allegedly drugged and sodomized a teenage vendor.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police has since launched a manhunt for the man who drugged a teenage vendor from Cowdray Park suburb and allegedly sodomized him in a bushy area before leaving him bleeding.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident to a local tabloid saying;
“I can confirm that we are investigating a case of aggravated indecent assault that occurred in Cowdray Park where a 13-year-old boy who was selling his wares was allegedly sexually attacked in a bushy area near the railway line in Cowdray Park suburb.”
The unsuspecting teenage boy was selling his wares in the suburb had the misfortune of meeting the man who pretended to be a potential buyer
The man who was on a mission to sodomize the teenager allegedly told the teenager that he left his money at the Caravan near the railway line and he fell for the trap.
While they were heading there he allegedly gave him a drink laced with a drug and the boy who did not suspect anything sinister drank the laced drink.
The boy allegedly followed the man and when they got to the railway line the boy was tipsy. The man hoodwinked him to move into a bushy area and forced him to lie down before he sodomized him.
The yet-to-be-identified man allegedly sodomized him for the second time and then fled. The boy sustained lesions on his behind and bled.
When he got home, the boy narrated the sodomy ordeal to his father, who then accompanied him to Cowdray Park police station where a report of aggravated indecent assault was made.
