Accused rapist is remanded

Police say they caught 24 year old Alexander Nunez, an employee of Cisco Construction, red-handed forcing himself on a woman nearly twice his age on Racoon Street, Belize City,  on Friday night.

On Tuesday he was remanded into custody, after arraignment before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer, who upheld the prosecution’s objection to bail on the grounds of a strong case, the safety of the defendant who lives not far from the complainant, aged 43, and the safety of the prosecution’s witnesses including the complainant.

Police picked up Alexander Nunez while in the act of rape, on their mobile patrol in the area.

He returns to court on January 27, 2015.
