REAL NEWS- Two women were the victims of rape by an unknown masked man who entered their homes in separate incidents within the space of 24 hours. Reports say that on Sunday, June 2, an adult female telephoned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and complained that she had been raped by a lone masked man. This offence reportedly occurred at about 5 a.m. and an officer from the Special Victims Unit was informed. Meanwhile, a 25-year-old woman reported that she, too, had been raped by a masked gunman, and that matter was relayed to the CID, as well.

Reportedly this offence occurred at about 2:16 in the morning hours of June 3.

In this instance, it is alleged that the unknown man entered the victim’s house through a push-up window – that was closed but not locked – and flashed a bright light into her face. Allegedly, after sexually violating the young woman, the masked intruder then ransacked her room and took about $400 in cash from her purse.

The man was described as about 5’ 8” tall; dressed entirely in black clothing; wearing a black ski mask; and carrying a handgun. It is alleged that he fled from the scene via the front door. A search reportedly was carried out in the immediate area for a suspect fitting the description but without success. The victim was taken to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre to seek medical attention.
