Police have arrested a 29-year-old man who is alleged to have raped an underage girl. A Police report said that the 15-year-old girl was allegedly raped on Saturday in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).
It is alleged that the victim was on her way to the shop when the suspect came up from behind her, pulled her in some nearby bushes, and raped her. As a result, the victim started to scream and a male passerby raised an alarm which caused her to escape.
The victim was seen and examined by a doctor. The suspect was contacted, told of the offence committed, cautioned, and placed in custody pending further investigations.
