Cops look for UWI rapist

A nineteen-year-old University of the West Indies (UWI) student was raped twice early yesterday morning by a man who broke into her apartment in St Augustine.

The student was asleep at her apartment around 4 a.m. when the man broke in. Armed with a knife, the man ordered the teenager to remove her clothing, following which he raped her as she screamed at him to stop.

The man then took her BlackBerry Curve cellphone valued $1,100 and ran off.

The girl made a report to the St Joseph police and a team of officers later took her to be medically examined at Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, following which she gave them a description of the suspect.

The man was described as six feet tall, medium build, dark-skinned and wearing dark coloured clothing at the time.

St Joseph CID officers are continuing investigations.
