Police in Kadoma have arrested three suspected armed robbers who raped and robbed women in Mashonaland West province.
The suspects (names withheld) were arrested last week.
Sources close to the investigations yesterday said the police had so far cleared 19 cases of rape and robbery committed in Kadoma and Chegutu.
They were targeting mostly women whom they robbed of cash, cellphones and valuables, before raping them.
This came as cases of robbery are reported to be on the increase in the country.
