Manchester teenager raped
MANDEVILLE, Manchester - The police have launched an investigation into the rape of a 16-year-old girl, the second such incident in the parish in less than a week.
Head of the Manchester Police Superintendent Lascelles Taylor said the teenager was assaulted on her way home in Alligator Pond on Sunday night.
The police report that the girl was walking with a male relative when they were held up by a man.
He dragged the teen into bushes and assaulted her.
Superintendent Taylor says investigators have information on the alleged rapist and attempts are being made to find him.
Detectives are also still making arrangements to lay charges against the taxi operator accused of raping a 12 year old girl in the parish.
The suspect, who is known by the child, was questioned yesterday.
The man, who is said to be in his 20's, was picked up after the child was assaulted on Thursday, after she took a ride in his cab.
