A MOUNT Pleasant woman was on Friday kidnapped from an accident scene by a motorist whose car had crashed onto her vehicle in Harare.

Yvonne Manyonda was forced into Kudzai Shamu’s vehicle following a misunderstanding over the accident.

Kudzai told Yvonne they were going to Harare Central Police Station for their statements to be recorded.

However, he drove in the opposite direction and headed towards the city’s heavy industrial area.

Kudzai was later arrested.

Harare provincial police spokesperson Inspector Luckmore Chakanza confirmed the arrest.

“Police arrested a motorist reported to have kidnapped a female motorist after the two were involved in a road traffic accident,” said Insp Chakanza.

“They had a misunderstanding until the accused person ordered the complainant to get into his motor vehicle so that they could proceed to Harare Central to report the accident and she complied. 

“The accused person did not drive to Harare Central Police, as they had agreed, rather he drove along Chinhoyi Street towards Lyton Industries.

“The accused person was arrested and detained at Harare Central Police Station,” said Insp Chakanza.
