CITCO to improve lighting on the Sir Manuel Esquivel overpass

The disturbing incident of a woman being raped on the Sir Manuel Esquivel overpass has driven the Belize City council to improve lighting in the area. On Friday, April 29, a 28-year-old woman was attacked and raped on the overpass as she was walking home just after 7 o’clock. The woman told police that while she was on the walkway a man grabbed her from behind and placed her in a choke-hold and momentarily knocked her out. She says that when she regained consciousness the assailant attacked and raped her. It’s a troubling incident that Belize City Mayor, Bernard Wagner, says prompted the council to install more lights in the area.

On Monday, police charged 18-year-old Tayshaun Burns with rape.
