Police hunt for Petauke man who filmed his sexual assault on an unconscious woman

Filed under: Breaking News |

The Zambia Police have launched investigations into a video that has gone viral, in which an unconscious female is seen being sexually abused by a male person purported to have happened in Petauke District of Eastern Province.

In the graphic one minute twenty seconds video, the man is seen fondling the private parts of a naked and seemingly intoxicated woman while inviting other men to sleep with her.

Police spokesperson Esther Katongo has described the conduct of the person who filmed the video as inhuman and has pleaded with the yet to be identified victim to come forward and give a statement.

“The conduct by the thug who filmed and posted the video on social media is inhuman, a violation of human rights and above all criminal,” said Katongo, adding “We are therefore appealing to the victim not to shy-away from the Police as it has been the case in such matters but to avail herself to Police so that a statement can be recorded from her.

“We further appeal to relatives of the victim and those that may know her, to encourage her to go to any nearest Police Station and give information on what transpired on the material day and further be counseled.

“We also call on members of the public who could have information on the whereabouts of the perpetrator of the heinous crime to confide in Police officers.”

She warned of a severe crackdown on perpetrators of cybercrime.

“The Zambia Police will not relent in arresting all those that would want to commit crimes using social media and we are warning all would be offenders to stay away from such acts or risk being arrested and prosecuted. The perpetrator may be hiding today but he will not hide in perpetuity, soon he will be fished out. The same applies to all other cases involving abuse of cyber space.”

  1. For this once i fully support ZPs efforts. Date rape is a very serious issue. The said woman’s privacy was violated beyond words. It also violated our mothers in the worst most disgusting way possible. I am praying to God that this culprit is arrested and the law takes it course
