Police said they have one person assisting with investigations into the alleged rape this week of a 97-year-old woman in Mon Repos, Micoud.
Crime Chief Milton Desir made the announcement at a press conference on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015.
No further details were provided on this incident, but Desir said the police are going to pursue the perpetrators of the recent rape incidents “relentlessly”, leaving no stones “unturned”.
The elderly woman, who lives alone, was reportedly treated at hospital and discharged.
A reliable police source said the woman’s house was burglarised and several items are missing.
She was discovered after relatives paid a routine visit to her home.
In a press release on Thursday, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony expressed outrage over the alleged rape of the elderly woman.
He said this “despicable act” not only violates an elderly citizen, but the entire community and country.
“It is unbelievable that someone would even think of committing such an act. This is a heinous and outrageous act. It is inconceivable that a human being would do this,” the prime minister said. “I wish to express my sorrow to the family and the community as they grieve over this wicked and despicable act.”
