The Westmoreland Police charged a 39-year-old man of a Grange Hill address in the parish for several offences on Sunday, May 30. 

He was charged with:

  • Illegal Possession of Firearm 
  • Burglary
  • Rape
  • Assault at Common Law
  • Grievous Sexual Assault (3counts)
  • Buggery

The charges stem from an incident that happened about 10:00 p.m., on Thursday, May 20. The accused man allegedly went into the bedroom of a minor and raped her at gunpoint. The matter was reported to the police and a targeted raid was carried out by police personnel on Monday, May 24. 

He was then pointed out during an identification parade on Thursday, May 27, 2021, and was subsequently charged on Sunday, May 30, 2021.   

His court date has not yet been finalised.
