It is alleged that the worshippers who included three students from Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) were on top of the mountain around 10 pm on Saturday, August 13, 2022 when the suspect pounced on them.

It is alleged that before raping one of the worshippers, the suspect had threatened to kill them all with his sword if ever they resist his demands.

He also ordered two of them to undress and have sexual intercourse in front of their colleagues but they refused.

He appealed to members of the public to always be security conscious whenever conducting activities in secluded places, especially during the night.
