POLICE in Bulawayo are hunting for three women who allegedly abducted a man from Cowdray Park and forced him to have sex with them before taking away his semen.
The suspected sperm harvesters are said to be driving a white Toyota Cresta.
The incident happened on February 8.
The suspects allegedly offered a lift to a male hitch hiker along 6th Avenue. The man was travelling to Cowdray Park at around 8PM.
One of the women allegedly used a condom while the others had unprotected sex with him.
They allegedly took his semen with them.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Precious Simango yesterday said the suspects are still on the run.
She said they would be charged with aggravated indecent assault once they were caught.
“They picked their victim at an illegal hiking point along 6th Avenue at about 8PM on Tuesday, February 8.
“Their victim was travelling to Cowdray Park and while on the way they changed the route prompting him to inquire where they were taking him. They told him they were taking a short cut,” said Insp Simango.
She said the women stopped their car in a bushy area along Victoria Falls Road before taking turns to sexually assault the hitchhiker.
“One of the women used a condom while the others had sex with him without protection. They then took away his semen before dumping him,” she said.
Insp Simango urged members of the public to stop boarding taxis at undesignated places saying it made them vulnerable to criminals.
She appealed to members of the public who have information that may lead to the arrest of the suspected sperm harvesters to come forward.
Sperm harvesters made headlines in 2011 when they were pouncing on motorists along the Gweru-Harare highway. In 2011, three Gweru women were arrested after they were caught at a roadblock with 31 condoms that contained semen.
Rosemary Chakwizira, 24, Sophie Nhokwara, 26, and Netsai Nhokwara, 24, all of Mkoba Village Four, faced 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault but were acquitted due to lack of evidence.
Last year, a Gweru commuter omnibus driver Edson Nkiwane allegedly offered an 18-year-old vagrant accommodation at his house before collecting his sperm that he stored in a bottle, after performing oral sex on the homeless man.
