Man allegedly rapes woman home alone


A 21-year-old man who is accused of raping a young woman with a disability is currently in Police custody. 

A Police release said the incident took place last Sunday at Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).

Reports are that the 21-year-old woman was at home alone when the suspect went into the premises. 

The suspect then held the victim down and had sex with her against her will. When her relatives returned home, the victim was found crying and she confided in them. 

The relatives reported the matter to the Police. The suspect was apprehended by public-spirited citizens and handed over to the Police.

Under caution, the suspect reportedly said, “Officer, I went over to charge me phone and I just hold on pon she for one minute and she tell me to stop and I stop.”

He remains in custody as investigations continue.
