DPP to decide on possible charges for cops accused of raping, robbing female motorist

By Clinton McGregor   

The Director of Public Prosecutions is to decide if charges should be laid against the policemen implicated in the alleged robbery and rape of a female motorist in St. Elizabeth last week.

Radio Jamaica News was informed that a file is to be submitted to the DPP for a ruling.

The four policemen, who are attached to the St. Elizabeth Police Division, were taken into custody last week after a female motorist alleged that she was robbed, sexually assaulted and threatened by the policemen following a traffic stop last Monday night.

It is reported that the police team was on Check Point operation along the Crawford main road about 10:00 p.m. when they stopped the 26-year-old woman.

She was driving with a demonstration plate on her vehicle.

It's reported that she offered the cops $7,000 which she had on her, but they demanded $50,000 in return for not prosecuting her.

It is further alleged that the policemen took her to an ATM in Black River where she attempted to withdraw the funds but was unsuccessful.

She was then told by one of the constables to drive to a supermarket in Black River where she was taken to the back of the establishment and reportedly raped.

The woman alleges that the police threatened to kill her if she reported the assault.
