Social media rape suspect held
Police have held a 27-year-old man after a woman was allegedly raped by someone she met on social media.
He is expected to be placed on identification parades today.
The suspect, who was arrested on Wednesday by a team of officers led by WPC Joseph, has denied any of the allegations made by the 22-year-old woman.
The incident reportedly took place on Tuesday at Maraj Street, Chaguanas.
According to police reports, the woman, from Morvant, was communicating with a man she added on social media two weeks ago.
The man reportedly invited her to a boat cruise over the coming weekend and invited her to an apartment on Maraj Street to collect the tickets.
The woman said she arrived at the location at about 1:30 pm that day, however, she was instead taken into a room where she was sexually assaulted.
The man then left her.
She said she immediately went back home and made a report to the Morvant Police.
More on this as it becomes available.
