A Sergeant Major with the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) stationed at Chikato police station is on the run after raping his juvenile stepdaughter on countless occasions since 2015 with some of the events taking place inside the police camp.
The police officer who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim who is a juvenile has since fled and the police have launched a manhunt.
A police docket under ZRP Chikato RRB number 4084646 in possession of TellZim News, revealed that the police officer allegedly started to sexually abuse his stepdaughter in December 2015 when he molested her breasts while they were in Nemanwa area under Chief Charumbira.
It is further alleged that the officer returned home during lunchtime sometime in April 2016 and asked the juvenile to come into his bedroom where he had sexual intercourse without her consent before threatening to chase her away from home if she revealed the case to anyone.
The docket further reads that the police officer went on to have sexual intercourse with the minor from April 2016 to April 2018 on every school holiday while the complainant’s mother was away.
The complainant reported the matter to her mother who could not believe the story and the complainant went on to talk to the neighbor who approached the family to discuss the issue and the accused is said to have stopped his mischiefs for a while.
However, all hell broke loose on August 18, 2019 at around 2300hrs when the accused sneaked into the complainant’s room while her other four siblings were asleep.
The accused went on to remove the complainant’s blankets and as she woke up he then dragged her to his bedroom where he laid her on his bed as he removed her clothes.
As the accused was about to have sexual intercourse, one of the complainant’s sibling came in and found the accused mounting on top of the juvenile.
The complainant then started crying and left the room and they notified their female neighbor. The neighbor proceeded to the house where they found the culprit who is still at large already gone leaving them with no option but to report the case to the police at the same police camp.
