Woman Escapes Assault at Belize Defence Force Base in Ladyville

A woman employed with the Belize Defence Force (BDF) says she was attacked and almost raped this morning at Price Barracks in Ladyville.  The civilian says she was on the base in her temporary makeshift office near the chapel when a man dressed in dark clothing and a face covering entered and attacked her.  According to reports, the woman was able to fight him off, and escape the area.  She reportedly went to the Ladyville Police to file a complaint.  The senior command of the BDF would not comment on the issue, but we do understand that an internal investigation has been launched, and will run simultaneously with the Police investigation.
