A WOMAN was gang-raped and her husband beaten by thieves in east Trinidad on Monday.
The 38-year-old woman was hospitalised after the incident.
Police said at around 10 p.m. the woman and her 45-year-old husband were at their home when three men, one armed with a firearm, stormed the premises.
The assailants tied up the husband and wife in separate rooms.
The husband was dealt several blows to the head, and the woman sexually assaulted by the intruders.
The men then grabbed thousands of dollars' worth of brand name sneakers, gold jewellery, electronic items, as well as $600 Canadian, and $500 and ran off.
Both victims were taken for medical treatment.
