Woman raped in home invasion
A 51-year-old San Fernando woman was robbed and raped by gunmen who invaded her home on Wednesday night.
Reports stated that the woman’s brother was in the yard around 8.30 pm when two gunmen ran up to him. They began to beat him with gun butts and while doing so, a shot accidentally went off.
No one was hit, but it woke the woman, who remained in her bedroom. The gunmen then dragged her brother into the house and they scoured the rooms for valuable items. One of the gunmen went into the woman’s bedroom where they stole cash and jewelry, then raped her. They then ran off along the roadway.
San Fernando CID and the Southern Division Task Force responded to the incident and a search was launched for the suspects. Up to late yesterday, they were not found. The victims were taken to the San Fernando General Hospital where they were treated and discharged. They were then interviewed by investigators.
PC Crawford is continuing inquiries.
