A 38-year-old Harare man lost an Iphone and US$5 to three commercial sex workers who attacked him while he was attending to his vehicle after it had developed a mechanical fault last night.

The incident occurred at the intersection of Central Avenue and Sixth Street.

Police have since arrested the three suspects Phakamani Sibanda (39), Pepisani Sibanda (39) and Tanaka Samakande (31) in connection with the case.

They were arrested following a reaction by the police leading to the recovery of the Iphone and the cash.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrest.
