They are expected to appear in the San Fernando 1st Magistrates’ Court today.

Thomas was held by officers last Friday, while Ravello surrendered to police two days later.

The victims told police they boarded a white Nissan Tiida with 3 male occupants around 3:45 am on December in the San Fernando district and asked to be taken to Fyzabad.

The women were allegedly taken to Diamond Village, where a fourth man armed with a gun ordered them out of the vehicle.

The women were assaulted and robbed of quantities of cash, jewellery, and a cellular phone.

They were then forced back into the vehicle which proceeded to Debe, where they were assaulted for a second time before being dropped off in the Penal district. The men then drove away.

Two other accused: Joshua Williams, 31, and Jerod Boysie, aka “Raymond Abdool”, 20, both of Diamond Village, San Fernando, appeared before the courts last Wednesday to answer to the same charges.
