On March eighth at about one p.m. a sixteen-year-old female of San Ignacio Town visited the San Ignacio Town Police Station in the company of a guardian and reported that the night before whilst walking on Bullet Tree Road heading home from Maxim’s Restaurant and upon reaching Rx Pharmacy, a male person who was behind her grabbed and dragged her behind the pharmacy and had sexual intercourse with her against her will. This afternoon, following the conclusion of a police investigation, thirty-one year old Garth Longsworth, a sales and marketing manager of Cran Street in Belize City, was formally arrested and charged for the crime of rape.
