Cadet recruit reports gang rape at Cadet HQ

NALINEE SEELAL Monday, March 20 2017

A 23-year-old cadet recruit was allegedly raped by two of her cadet officers who were aided by three male recruits in the rape act. The victim went to the Carenage Police Station at about 3.30 pm on Friday and reported to police that on October 17, 2016 she was at the dormitory at the Cadet headquarters, Chaguaramas when she was accosted by three male recruits who held her down. The woman said she was unable to overpower the men and was stunned when two male officers who were supposed to be engaged in training her took turns in sexually assaulting her.

She said following the rape act she was threatened and told she would be removed from the training if she reported the matter to the police. The woman said that she underwent severe emotional stress and could not function properly and every time she saw the two suspects while at the Cadet headquarters she would feel sick and depressed. She said on Friday she could take it no more and decided to report the matter so she could get some form of justice.

The woman could not be medically examined and was told to return on Wednesday so she could be taken to a District Medical Officer (DMO) to be examined.

Newsday understands that officers of the Carenage CID are expected to interview the suspects this week and a file will then be forwarded to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for directions in the matter. The female recruit was advised to continue to report to duties and not be intimidated by anyone.

Sources revealed this is not the first time that female recruits have been sexually assaulted at the headquarters but the matters were never reported because of threats issued to the victims.

In an unrelated matter, a 27-year-old woman of St John Road, St Augustine who was remanded in custody at the Golden Grove prison, Arouca on Tuesday for trafficking in drugs told a senior prisons officer that earlier this month she was walking along Centenary Street, Tunapuna where she was pulled into an abandoned house by a man known to her and was sexually assaulted. The officer alerted the Tunapuna police and the remand prisoner was interviewed and medically examined by a DMO.

Investigations are continuing in that matter.
