Woman raped after man offers 'safe' place to stay

Central Division police are investigating a report of rape against a 46-year-old chef.

According to reports around 4.30 am the victim was standing outside Ramsingh Plaza, located along the Southern Main Road, Couva, in the company of a man she had met earlier that night.

The victim told police that she was having trouble getting a taxi and the suspect offered for her to wait in a safe area near the Plaza where his relatives allegedly resided.

The woman agreed, however, while en route, she told police that the man forced her to an unfinished steel structure along the roadway and had sex with her against her will.

The suspect, police were told, then left the woman there.

The woman made a report and was taken for medical treatment.

WPC Johnson is continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
