Desire Siaponda (30) allegedly hired the services of a prostitute (name withheld for ethical reasons) at Manor Hotel on Wednesday last week and raped her in a secluded area near Thorngrove suburb on the same night.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident yesterday.
He said the accused person impersonated a cop as he lured the woman.
“We have arrested a 30-year-old man who allegedly raped a sex worker in Bulawayo. The man who comes from Binga is said to have approached the sex worker at a local hotel who charged him US$10 for sexual services for the whole night.
“The suspect then told the lady that there was another gate which they could use located near the Zupco depot.
He said his victim reported the matter to the police.
Insp Ncube said the suspect was arrested on Saturday at the same hotel.
“His victim spotted him at the same hotel and reported the matter to security officials who detained him while waiting for police officers. He was then arrested and is expected to appear in court in due course,” he said.
