    BEATRICE - Three Harare men who went into the Beatrice area in
    Mash East and allegedly tried to use fake US$100 notes to buy goods
    were thoroughly beaten by a crowd and one of them is hospitalised with
    serious head injuries.
    The three were assaulted after a shopkeeper quickly alerted residents
    of the presence of the suspects. One of the suspects is battling for life at
    Chitungwiza General Hospital after sustaining serious head injuries, according
    to a reliable source.
    Efforts to get a comment from Acting Mashonaland East Police Spokesperson Assistant Inspector Tendai Mwanza were fruitless. Spencer Chakaedza of Waterfalls, Freedom Chipanga of Mari dale, Norton and Elisha Muuya
    of Area E, Chitungwiza were assaulted on Monday by residents of Gilston Shops after they used a fake US$100 note to buy groceries.
    The incident occurred at around 2pm when Chakaedza entered into a shop leaving his two colleagues in a red Toyota Hilux, registration number AAP 6439. He allegedly gave a shopkeeper $100 and the later immediately discovered it was
    fake.
    The shopkeeper quickly advised residents who made a good show of
    mob justice. Chakaedza tried to escape back to the vehicle but the residents went
    on to assault his two colleagues who were in the vehicle. These were luck to be saved by the arrival of Beatrice Police deployed at Gilston.
    The suspects were searched and found in possession of $1 100 fake notes and were arrested and escorted to Beatrice Police Station. Chakaedza sustained severe head injuries as a result of the assault. He was sent to Beatrice Hospital for
    medication and was transferred to Chitungwiza. crime news
