A 66-year-old woman was reportedly raped by a taxi driver Thursday night, in Hampstead, St Mary. The woman was a passenger in the motor vehicle that was en route from Half Way Tree to Port Maria.
The woman was the last remaining passenger in the vehicle as others had got off in Highgate and Harmony Hall in the parish.
It is alleged that the taxi driver made a phone call and later turned off onto the Hampstead road, where he raped the woman.
The taxi driver then left his victim in the area.
Relatives of the woman are now pleading with those who were in the vehicle to assist the police with any information that could lead to the arrest of the taxi operator.
It is further alleged that the cabbie may have raped other passengers before.
