Three Belize City Men in Custody after allegedly raping a 14-year-old

Three Belize City are in police custody after they allegedly raped a fourteen-year-old girl. Around 9 p.m. on Sunday, the minor was attacked and sexually assaulted by the ben as she made her way home from the store. The victim says the men dragged her into a dark area and stripped her of her clothes before committing the heinous act. The girl appeared in the media last night and claimed that the police were not acting as swiftly as they hoped, and said she feared for her life. However, today, Commissioner of Police Chester Williams explained that the police handled the matter with urgency but failed to keep the family updated. 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “The information you shared that was given to you was not accurate per se. The police officers did give the report the urgency it needed. The young lady was immediately taken for medical treatment to be examined, that was done. The police officers visited the area, found where the incident actually occurred, valuable evidence was found there. Those were taken, collected as evidence and shortly thereafter police detained three of the young men who did this act and they’re in custody awaiting to be charged. So I think the issue may be that the police need to do more in terms of giving feedback to complainants. Perhaps they felt that nothing was being done because the police was not giving them feedback so that is something we have to address internally.”
