A 12-year-old girl narrowly escaped possible injury, or worse, after she evaded three men who had kidnapped her while she was looking for transport near a primary school in Eastlea last Friday.
The three assailants dragged the girl into a blue Toyota Hiace and drove away.
She, however, managed to escape from the three men after they had parked the vehicle in the Hillside area.
The girl hid in a nearby maize field. A report was later made to the police.
Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the kidnapping to The Herald.
He said the incident occurred around 1 PM at the main gate of a primary school in Eastlea. Said Asst Comm Nyathi:
The victim was dragged into the suspects’ vehicle while looking for transport from school to Ruwa.
The victim managed to escape and hid in a maize field after the suspects had parked the vehicle at an unknown place in Hillside.
Anyone with information should report at any nearest police station.
