Teen raped during robbery
A Couva couple was forced to sit helplessly as armed men raped their 15-year-old daughter yesterday. Police said at around 4.30 am, a 55-year-old service station operator was in his yard preparing for work when two gunmen held him up at gunpoint. He was ordered back into his house where his wife and daughter were asleep.
The family was robbed of $50,000 in cash and the men bound the parents’ hands and feet before taking the teenager into another room where they raped her before fleeing the scene with the cash. A manhunt has been launched for the suspects by Supt Johnny Abraham and Insp Terrence Williams. The teen was taken to the Couva District Health Centre where she was examined and discharged.
