A 79-year-old woman has died after she was was raped by two men in Zimbabwe.
According to police reports, the men were arrested after one of them forgot a cellphone at the crime scene.
The two men attacked the woman identified as Marubeni Sithole at around 4:00 a.m in her home.
Police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Luxson Chananda said that 19-year-old Lovemore Mlambo
and Josiah Simango, 30, broke into the woman’s house to rob her before the Teenager suddenly had a sexual urge.
When the 30-year-old criminal knocked the door, the elderly woman opened and he pushed her into the house and onto the floor then he kicked her before proceeding into the rest of the house.
The teenager then decided to rape the woman while Simango acted as a lookout. When they noticed she was bleeding profusely, they fled the house.
As they fled, one of them grabbed the woman’s phone thinking it was his and left his own phone with the dying woman.
Police have since tracked them down and charged them with rape and murder.
