GUTU – IN a typical horror movie style, three neighbourhood police officers from Gutu allegedly torched a rape suspect's genitals with a burning log as part of "punishment" for the way the suspect had "raped" a young girl aged four, leaving her all bloodied and covered in semen.
The neighbourhood police trio allegedly played "judge and jury" after nabbing the suspect in Village 5, Mushaviri Farm, and decided to scorch his "gear box" so that he would never perpetrate  privates before taking him to Gutu police station.
William Maromo (45), Charles Muzenda (25) and Blantyre Bonzo Phillip have since been locked up in police cells and are facing assault charges as defined in Section 89 (1) (a) of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act Chapter 9:23.
The trio changed their plea from guilty to not guilty when they appeared before Gutu Resident Magistrate Edwin Marecha, although they had admitted to committing the offence in a written statement.
The case was postponed to June 30 for further trial and the three were granted an option to pay $100 bail each.
Maromo, Muzenda and Bonzo were arrested after the rape suspect, Washington 

Togo (19), revealed during his initial appearance that something horrible had been done to him during his arrest.
A medical examination later confirmed that Togo suffered extensive burns on his genitals and had bruises all over his body.
It is the State's case that on June 7, 2016, the three police officers assaulted Togo several times all over his body and under his feet using a wooden stick for allegedly raping his neighbour's four year old child.
They allegedly burnt his genitals using a burning log after being horrified by the sight of the abused child.
The court heard that Togo had raped the child and left semen on her body.
Togo, who pleaded not guilty to the charge, was remanded in custody to June 29 and was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
