Police detain one of their own for rape

Arouca police arrested one of their own on Thursday, after the 34-year-old policeman was accused of raping a woman in the district.

Police said the 22-year-old victim was walking in Pine Ridge Heights, Arouca, at around 2.30 pm on Wednesday when a blue car drove alongside her and the driver threatened to shoot her if she did not get into the car.

The officer took the woman to a guest house, where he raped her, then dropped her off at Singh Street, Arouca.

The woman later made a report and was taken to hospital and medically examined.

Around 5am yesterday, investigators went to the NUGFW housing development, Arouca, to conduct enquiries and found the man they believed to be the suspect and arrested him.

Investigators said the man was last assigned to the Northern Division Task Force Area West.
