One caught, one sought in Dangriga rape

Dangriga police have detained one man and are looking for another following a report from a minor that she was raped by both. The incident reportedly occurred sometime last month. The complainant, a fourteen-year-old student from the town, alleges that while she was walking on Yampa Street a red car driven by someone she knew stopped beside her. The man asked her to get into the car but when the teenager refused, she was forced into the vehicle. According to the girl, the driver took her to the riverside where he and his companion had sexual intercourse with her against her will. According to authorities, they have been unable to determine exactly when the alleged incident happened and reports reaching them suggest that the reason why the minor took so long to report the incident is because she was offered money by one of the accused. Police say they are still investigating to see whether or not the incident happened as reported and if there was any financial transaction between the men and the girl.
