POLICE in Mashonaland East province have arrested two armed robbers who impersonated police detectives and robbed a man of his mobile phones and a Mercedes Benz.
Reports say the suspects, initially arrived at Stewart Mugara’s house in the Mabhauwa area which is at the periphery of Marondera before telling their target that they were police detectives investigating a crime he had committed in South Africa.
