A 17 year old female has reported being raped by an unknown man. The incident happened on Thursday September 4, at about one o’clock in the morning.

Police say they were called to a hotel  located on the Philip Goldson Highway, where they met the 17 year old  female who claimed she was raped by an unknown man. The female said that she was picked up by her friend and her friend’s boyfriend in a taxi along with an unfamiliar man of East Indian descent. The taxi then went to the hotel where her friend left her and told her she would be back. The man then invited the minor to his room, where he had sexual intercourse with her against her will.

A medical examination was conducted on the minor and as a result police have detained a 33-year-old man of the Cayo District pending investigation.
