Woman raped after accepting ride

A woman was allegedly raped in Debe on Sunday after accepting a ride from a man she knows.

According to police reports, the woman was with her boyfriend around 2.30 am on Sunday at a bar in the area when they got into an argument and he left her there.

She went to his home around a half-hour later but didn’t find him there and decided to wait around at a nearby junction. Shortly after, a man she knows from the area pulled alongside her in his car and offered her a ride back to the bar to look for her boyfriend. She accepted.

But, instead of heading straight to the bar the man made a detour along the way and turned into a nearby dead-end street where he threatened and raped her.

He then dropped her off at Harris Village, South Oropouche.

The woman later made a report to police in San Fernando. Officers took her to the Princes Town Health Centre, where she was medically examined.

Enquiries are ongoing.
