Two men suspected of being members of a gang that shot, robbed and assaulted residents in Tshabalala and Nkulumane suburbs last weekend have been arrested.
Police in Bulawayo on Monday arrested Christopher Dande, who is now admitted to the United Bulawayo Hospitals after he was bitten by CID dogs while trying to run away in Pumula South.
Ronald Chigwida was also arrested in Bulawayo. Chigwida runs a vending stall in the city’s Cowdray Park suburb.
The gang is suspected to have robbed an 88-year-old man, Tedious Dibula of Nkulumane 12 last Saturday, assaulting him in his home after failing to get money.
The gang allegedly attacked a businessman from Tshabalala, Henry Gumbo, and robbed him of his cash.
They also robbed Walter Dhobha and his family at around 3 AM and got away with RTGS $800, R600 and US$20.
A Nyamandlovu farmer is thought have been robbed by the same gang in March where they went away with US$15 000, R140 000, RTGS10 000, jewellery, two guns and two cell phones.
