Father in custody over alleged rape of daughter, 16
A 38-year-old Berbice father has been taken into police custody for allegedly drugging and then raping his 16-year-old daughter around 12:30 am on Tuesday.
The traumatized teen recently started living at her father’s house and was rudely awakened to find him violating her. She questioned what he was doing and he told her to “shut up before I chop you” with a cutlass that was nearby.
He also held her hands and covered her mouth as he continued the act. After the ordeal she managed to escape and ran almost one mile to her grandmother’s house, trembling and crying. Along the way she became even more terrified when a strange young man asked her where she was going at that hour. She then pretended as though she was asking persons on the phone if they were almost there to pick her up.
She also passed two male security guards in front of a building but was afraid of them as well.
