Police are looking to arrest two women who allegedly raped a man by threatening him with a deadly snake, police in Zimbabwe said.

Karoi police said that the 29-year-old victim, who was not identified, was abducted from the side of a road, where he attempted to get a ride to a nearby town.

According to the police investigation, the victim was standing at the side of the road when the women offered him a lift.

When the victim entered the car, they drove to a secluded area and ordered the man to follow their orders. The man was threatened with a large snake.

One of the women then undressed and ordered the man to have sex with her while the other woman was holding the snake.

When the first suspect was satisfied, she took over the snake and the second suspect raped him. When both were done, the man was dumped at the side of the road.

Police spokesperson Comm Charamba appealed to the public for information leading to the arrest of the women. They urged witnesses to contact the National Complaints Desk or report to the nearest police station.
