A 38-year-old construction worker has been charged with the rape of a Jamaican national in Trinidad. The Trinidad Guardian yesterday reported that the man was arrested at his home on Thursday morning, and placed on an ID parade on Saturday.
He was said to have been pointed out by the victim and another witness. The man was subsequently charged and will appear before a magistrate today.
According to reports, the 26-year-old woman arrived at her home in Orchard Gardens, Chaguanas, on April 24 around 5 a.m., when she was accosted by a man who placed a knife to her throat and demanded that she hand over her belongings.
The woman told the man she had nothing, whereupon he forced her into her home where he allegedly raped her and then escaped through the front door.
