Serial Armed Robber Shot In The Neck

Serial Armed Robber Shot In The Neck

A suspected armed robber linked to robberies that took place in Gwanda and along the Bulawayo-Harare Road was shot in the neck by police in Matopo on Sunday.

Vincent Mpofu (29), who was armed with a loaded colt automatic pistol, was arrested just after he committed another armed robbery with two accomplices at Silozwe Business Centre, Matopo.

In a statement posted on their Twitter channel, ZRP said Mpofu was shot in the neck as he tried to escape imminent arrest. Police said:

Police in Bulawayo have arrested Lidion Moyo (51), Vincent Mpofu (29) and Liberty Moyo (25) for a robbery case that occurred at Silozwe Business Centre, Matopo on 21/11/21.

A colt automatic pistol with a magazine of two rounds was recovered from Vincent, who attempted to escape resulting in him being shot in the neck.

Investigations have revealed that the pistol was stolen through a robbery in Gwanda on 16/11/21 where a complainant was robbed of ZAR 70 000, US$3 500 and a pistol with 10 rounds of ammunition.

The suspects are being linked to 14 other cases of robbery including the one which occurred along Bulawayo-Harare Road where a complainant was robbed of US$32 000.

In an unrelated incident, police are investigating a case of murder that occurred at Chiredzi Dumping Site, in Chiredzi on Monday.

A man identified only as Guilty stabbed his ex-girlfriend, Mercy Zibwowa, five times with a knife, resulting in her death.

Zibhowa was now cohabiting with another man (35) and this did not go down well with the suspect who stabbed the victim in the presence of her new lover. The new boyfriend escaped.

Police are appealing for people with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to the nearest police station.
