A British woman was brutally raped in her villa in the early hours of Saturday, February 6, in Cas en Bas.
St. Lucia News Online (SNO) has confirmed the incident with a senior police official who said the matter is a sensitive one and the police will not be be able to disclose any information.
A source told SNO that the woman is about 45-years-old and had been staying at the villa for some time.
SNO understands that the woman was asleep when she was attacked and raped. The woman’s apartment door was also closed but unlocked, which made it easy for her attacker to enter her room.
The matter was reported to the local police and the British High Commission Office for the Eastern Caribbean.
Investigations are ongoing.
