Caps United defender, Method Mwanjali and midfielder, Archiford Gutu were today arrested for allegedly stabbing a Harare man two times in the stomach.
It is alleged that between 3:30 and 4:00 am a man driving a Toyota Altezza in the company of three colleagues allegedly used the wrong exit when leaving Long Cheng Plaza, thus blocking Mwanjali and Gutu who were entering the shopping mall.
Gutu allegedly reacted angrily and broke the windscreen of the complainant’s car.
A brawl is then said to have erupted and in the midst of the fracas, Mwanjali is alleged to have gone back to the car they were using where he took a knife which he used to allegedly stab the complainant two times in the stomach.
It is alleged that those at the scene of the incident had to restrain Mwanjali as a way of restricting any further injuries to the complainant.
Mwanjali and Gutu are alleged to have fled from the scene before handing themselves to police at Milton Park police station hours later.
The two are now in police custody.
The complainant is recovering at Parirenyatwa Hospital where he underwent surgery.
Police spokesperson chief superintendent Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident and said ongoing investigations will determine charges against the duo.
The two are however likely to appear in court soon facing charges of assault and malicious damage to property.
Chief Superintendent Nyathi encouraged people involved in disputes to desist from violence.
