KINGSTON, Jamaica - The two men who have been held in connection with the rape of five females, including an eight-year-old girl, in Irwin Point, St James will face an identification parade today.

One suspect was held by the police early last week while the other turned himself in on Friday.

The victims were tied up and raped at gunpoint on September 24. The five victims received medical treatment with the eight-year-old undergoing emergency surgery.

Crime Stop offered a million dollar reward for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators.
