No bail for rape accused


    Bail has been denied to two men accused of kidnapping, raping and robbing two women.

    The incident occurred on December 29th after the victims boarded a taxi with three men in San Fernando, and asked to be taken to Fyzabad.

    The men allegedly met up with a fourth armed man in Diamond Village, where they assaulted and robbed the women of cash, jewellery and a mobile phone.

    The victims were then driven to Debe, where they were again assaulted, before being dropped off in Penal.

    31 year old Joshua Williams and 20 year old Jerod Boysie also known as Raymond Abdool, appeared today before San Fernando Magistrate Alicia Chankar charged with rape, kidnapping, robbery with violence, and grievous sexual assault.

    They were remanded into custody and will reappear on February 6th.
