A 20-year old security guard has been detained in connection with the assault of an 18-year-old Venezuelan teenager.
The victim, who lives in Siparia, was attacked on Tuesday while on her way to sell empanadas in San Fernando.
She is currently warded in a critical but stable condition at the hospital, after undergoing surgery to save one of her eyes.
The 26-year old SRP and the security guard were held along the Audrey Jeffers Highway around 10:40 am on Wednesday in the vehicle that was allegedly used in the crime- a white, Honda Civic.
The car was sent to the Special Evidence Recovery Unit to be inspected for any traces of DNA.
The security guard lives at Waterhole Drive, Diego Martin.
