Touts menace, four arrested in Beitbridge

Police have arrested four touts who were caught on camera harassing an elderly woman at Dulivhadzimu long-distance bus terminus last week.

The four were arrested late on Tuesday night following a meeting between the police and intercity bus operators in the border town.

A police source close to the case said the four-handed themselves later after the meeting.

The official said the quartet whose names will be released in due course had been charged for being a public nuisance.

“They are now in police custody pending an appearance in court,” said the source.

The police officer commanding Beitbridge district Chief Superintendent Tichaona Nyongo confirmed the arrest but referred further questions to national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who was not available for comment this morning.
