A 25 year-old Zimbabwean woman was raped and robbed of R500 by an unknown man at a bushy area near Beitbridge Border Post.

Lt Mudau said the incident occurred on January 13, at about 11PM while the woman was relieving herself on the South African side of the border.

"The victim had just been cleared by our immigration authorities at Beitbridge Border Post when she and her friend decided to visit a nearby bush intending to relieve themselves. They were then confronted by a knife-wielding man and he demanded money.

"The victim handed the suspect her handbag containing R500 and a passport after which he then ordered the woman to undress before he went on to rape her once," said Lt Mudau.

However, the other woman managed to escape and reported the matter to the police.

The suspect is still at large and police have since launched a manhunt.
