Pomeroon miner charged with rape

A 25-year-old rape accused was yesterday remanded to prison when he appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Wakenaam Magistrate’s Court.

Trevoun James, a miner of Grant Canaan, Lower Pomeroon was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that he on August 24 raped a 20 year old.

According to the police facts, at around 3am, the complainant went to her home at Charity, Essequibo Coast and went to bed. She later heard a sound and saw a male person but didn’t recognize him. The man then choked her and held a knife to her throat, pulled her underwear down then had sex with her. After committing the act, the man left and she immediately called her boyfriend who took her to the police station.

After investigations, the suspect was arrested.

Bail was refused by the Magistrate and James who was not represented was remanded to prison until September 22 when the matter is expected to be called again at the Charity Magistrate’s Court.
