Gray charged for kidnapping and raping a minor

Darrell Gray

A Belize City carpenter was remanded to the Hattieville prison on charges for an alleged kidnapping and rape that happened over the weekend. Twenty-nine year old Darrell Gray appeared unrepresented before the court where he was charged with rape, kidnapping and unlawful carnal knowledge. Gray, a resident of Flamboyant Street, is accused of kidnapping and raping a fifteen year old girl when she was walking on Marigold Lane around nine that night. No plea was taken since the matters are indictable and will be tried in the Supreme Court. Gray told the court that he is innocent of the charges and all he did was to take the girl home. He also made it clear that he is familiar with the minor and her family. Police press officer, Fitzroy Yearwood provided the details at this morning’s press conference.

“A fifteen year old student of Belize City is reporting that she was kidnapped, raped, etc. on the twenty-eight of September. She is saying that around 9 p.m. she was visiting some relatives not too far from her home when she was approached by a dark complexion male on a bicycle. This person began a conversation with her. She realized that the conversation was going in a bad direction and she tried to walk off—hurriedly. This person then took out a black in color handgun, placed it on her side, forced her on the bicycle, took her to a two-storey abandoned house in that area where he forced her to remove her clothing and he had sexual intercourse with her against her will. She was taken to a medical officer where she was examined and the doctor did confirm that her hymen was indeed not intact; meaning that she was yes carnally known. Our police investigation led to the detention of Mister Darrel Grey, twenty-nine years carpenter of number 4B Flamboyant Street where he has since been arrested and charge for one count of kidnapping one count of rape and an account of carnal knowledge.”


Gray was denied bail and is set to reappear in court until November twelfth.

    I hope police and DPP do a proper job in this case. With a 3% conviction rate on murders, what is the conviction rate on sex crimes? I believe it is even lower.

    If convicted, the rapist should be castrated — it’s the only answer to preventing future rapes.

    Hang him hang him high tha bridge foot but castrate him first then hang him high make sure they have panades and soft drink so people can enjoy the hanging.

    Ladies stay at home after dark; you know how the system works. These criminals abuse you & even when taken to court are not found guilty. Preserve your dignity.

    mein the crime is getting out of control. someting needs to be done fast

  7. BMNJ says:

    If I were the parent of the 15 yr old victim, I would pay someone to castrate him. In doing so, I’m not only taking revenge but also permanently disabling him in committing further crime of this nature.

  8. Seletar says:

    @Peoples Power, you are so right — other countries do it, just put the names and addresses of all sex offenders into an internet-accessible database, so you can know who is dangerous in your neighborhood.

    remember, the rapists and murderers live among us — maybe next door!

    @BMNJ and @Storm, I agree — sex criminals should be castrated. Some member of the National Assembly needs to get energetic and write such a law. Less than an hour’s work, and our women will be better protected. I wonder why no women’s rights groups suggest laws like these to protect young girls?
