(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) — Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ab­duc­tion and rape of a 58-year-old woman who board­ed a PH taxi in Curepe on Fri­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are warn­ing of se­r­i­al rapists lurk­ing along the East/West cor­ri­dor pos­ing as PH dri­vers.

This lat­est in­ci­dent adds to five oth­er re­ports of women be­ing raped and dumped in the Cau­ra area.

Some of the vic­tims were younger and were stabbed, po­lice said.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, at about 8 pm the lat­est vic­tim got in­to a black ‘PH’ taxi near. The vic­tim told po­lice that she was in the back­seat when a man jumped in the front pas­sen­ger seat right af­ter she en­tered the car.

Min­utes fol­lowed two oth­er pas­sen­gers – a man and a woman en­tered the back of the ve­hi­cle on ei­ther side of her sand­wich­ing her in the mid­dle.

The fe­male pas­sen­ger was the first pas­sen­ger to ex­it and as she was get­ting out of the ve­hi­cle the pas­sen­ger in the back seat cuffed the vic­tim to the face and knocked her un­con­scious.

When she re­gained con­scious­ness, she told po­lice, she was ly­ing in some bush­es close to a road­way as she heard pass­ing ve­hi­cles.

The woman who was scared that her at­tack­ers were still in the area wait­ed un­til day­break to seek help.

Po­lice said her clothes were ripped.

She man­aged to make her way to a near­by house where she got helped and the po­lice called in.

The trau­ma­tised vic­tim was tak­en to the Tu­na­puna Po­lice Sta­tion and sub­se­quent­ly to the Er­ic Williams Med­ical Sci­ences Cen­tre where she was med­ical­ly ex­am­ined and treat­ed.
