SELF-CONFESSED hookers and suspected thugs assaulted a landlord when he demanded rentals of an apartment they are using to extort clients at Trekkerel Court along Central Avenue on Tuesday.
Sidney Sithole, 40, was assaulted, dragged and threatened with death for demanding rentals at Flat No. 25 where hookers and suspected thugs are renting.
"I am now living in fear after three men and three hookers assaulted me in broad daylight while people watched," said Sithole.
"They wanted to kill me for ordering them to look for alternative accommodation since they invaded my apartment without my consent and are not paying rentals for the room.
"Ndakutorerwa imba yangu nepfambi idzi pamwe nevakomana ava, I am unemployed and my wife is in Kwekwe.
"I wish I could find someone who can pay me US$200 per month than suffering while these thugs are benefiting from my property.
"My tenant left the apartment without notice after hookers disturbed his peace with his family at the flat and those guys, along with the hookers broke the keys and started using it as a brothel without my consent.
"Hanzi hatibve muroom 25 ukatirambidza kugara tinokuuraya, I want to thank a police officer who was passing by who rescued me from further beating.
"I am going to lodge a complaint with the police against them and if I fail to get help I will hire bouncers to force them out of the room.
"The leader of the thugs, suspected to be in the business of selling dangerous drugs, is Desmond Zimbudzana popularly known as 'Diesel'.
"He is the one benefiting from using my apartment; he led his team along with the hookers in assaulting me.
"Hookers are hiring men for sex using my apartment and Diesel along with his other guys are using it as their bedroom during the night and selling illicit drugs, imba yose Angove madrugs oga," said Sithole on his way to Fife Avenue police post.
One of the self-confessed hookers only identified as Sharon, is believed to be accommodating her clients during the night at the apartment.
She was captured by H-Metro lenses loitering along 8th Street hooking up men in a tiny dress.
Diesel could not be contacted for comment by the time of going to print and some of the hookers led by one Sharon refused to entertain H-Metro.
Meanwhile, H-Metro is reliably informed that Diesel and his team forced the unlocking of police handcuffs from the arrested Melisa and savaged the arresting officer in December last year.
Police retaliated, at least according to hookers, by beating all thigh vendors caught loitering for prostitution in Avenues before and after Christmas and finally arrested Melisa who appeared in court and is currently remanded in custody.
