A 12-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped by three unknown men in Eastlea last week as she was coming from school, police have said.
It is reported that the girl was looking for transport to go home in Ruwa when she was picked up by unidentified men at her school’s main gate.
The men were driving a blue Toyota Hiace vehicle.
Police spokesperson assistant commissioner Paul Nyathi said the suspects dragged the girl into their car without her permission and she was lucky to escape after they had parked in the Hillside area and managed to hide from the suspects in a nearby maize field.
“The victim was dragged into the suspects’ vehicle while looking for transport from school to Ruwa.
“The victim managed to escape and hid in a maize field after the suspects had parked the vehicle at an unknown place in Hillside.
Nyathi also said the suspects have not yet been arrested and appealed to the public to report any information which may lead to their arrest.
“Anyone with information to report at any nearest Police Station. #notocrime,” Nyathi said.
This comes at a time there have been several reports of girls and women being kidnapped, raped and killed.
