An elderly woman died after she was raped by a teenager.

Police in Chipinge, Zimbabwe, arrested two men after a cellphone was left at the crime scene.

The two men allegedly raped 79-year-old Marubeni Sithole at 4:00 a.m.

Police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Luxson Chananda said that 19-year-old Lovemore Mlambo
and Josiah Simango, 30, both went to the home of the elderly woman to rob her.

However, when the 30-year-old man knocked on the door, Sithole opened and he pushed her into the house before going inside. Sithole fell to the floor.

Simango proceeded to kick her. The teenager then decided to rape the woman while Simango acted as a lookout.

The teenager raped the woman, but fled the home after realizing that she was bleeding profusely. The men left the woman bleeding to death.

However, police tracked them down after Simango accidentally grabbed the victim’s phone instead of his own.

The two men were arrested and charged in the rape and murder of Sithole.
