A MOUNT Darwin man was fatally attacked by a crocodile while trying to cross a flooded Ruya River  on Friday.

Nebart Doro's body is yet to be discovered in the flooded river.

Acting Mashonaland Central province police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Naison Dhliwayo confirmed the case.

"We are looking for the body of Doro who was attacked by a crocodile to death while trying to cross the flooded Ruya River," Dhliwayo said.

Allegations are that the now deceased Doro was incompany of his his friend Jethiasi Chari (29) when he attempted to cross the River before being swept away by floods and a crocodile attack.

Chari then advised Martin Gwetsuro (59) who then filed a police report.

Police warned people to avoid crossing flooded rivers and not to test the floods with their body parts.

"We are warning people during this rain season that floods are inevitable so people should treat every river as a susceptible home for crocodiles," Dhliwayo said.
