Two charged with rape and kidnapping of two women


    Two men of Diamond Village are expected to appear before a San Fernando Magistrate today, charged with rape, kidnapping and sexual assault against two female victims.

    The victims said they boarded a white Nissan Tiida vehicle with three male occupants on Saturday December 29th 2018 in the San Fernando district and requested to be taken to Fyzabad.

    However, the men allegedly took the women to Diamond Village, where a fourth man, armed with a gun ordered them out of the vehicle.

    They were reportedly assaulted and robbed of a quantity of cash, jewelry and a mobile phone.

    The victims were then forced back into the vehicle, which proceeded to Debe, where they were again assaulted, before being dropped off in the Penal district.

    A report was subsequently made to police, which resulted in two men being arrested by officers of the San Fernando CID on January 4th at their homes.

    Two other men who were held in connection with the incident have since been released pending further enquiries.
