Elderly Woman Brutally Beaten and Sexually Assaulted

Henry Jemott

San Pedro Police are currently investigating a particularly heinous crime on the island and are seeking one man who they believe is still on the island. It is believed that that man brutally beat and sexually assaulted a seventy year old woman and possibly raped her as she walked home alone on Monday night. The woman was knocked unconscious and when she woke, her clothes were ripped and her underwear had been pulled down. Today, Deputy Commander of San Pedro, Assistant Superintendent Henry Jemott, told News Five that they believe the perpetrator must have been under the influence of drugs, and investigators are combing the island to locate him.

“On Tuesday, the seventeenth of November 2015, a seventy year old female came to the station and made a report of an assault. She stated that on Monday, the sixteenth of November, 2015 at around nine-thirty p.m., she was heading home. She was being followed by a male person—who was riding a bicycle—of Hispanic descent; low haircut. She then walked to the area of Coco Plum Street where the male person caught up with her and attacked her. She sustained injuries to the head and the lower part of her body. She fell unconscious; she was beaten unconscious. She then regained consciousness and bystanders in the area assisted her by escorting her to the polyclinic in San Pedro.”

    When this fool is caught they should give him a public beating then given max time in jail.

    Maximum sentence; Castration. Minimum Sentence; Castration. Lenient Jail Sentence; Publicize his crime and let him loose in the general population, without lower body clothing.
