Thursday, June 19, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Belize City police have arrested and charged businessman Adel Abdullah [Bishop], 65, for the crime of rape.

The charge against Abdullah arose out of a report made by a 19 year old woman who told police that the alleged rape happened on Friday afternoon, June 13.

According to police, the woman says that Abdullah [Bishop], whom she met on Marine Parade Boulevard, was supposed to have taken her to see a house that she was supposed to have rented, which is located at Mile 8 on the George Price Highway.

But instead of going to the previously agreed location, the woman said that Abdullah [Bishop] turned off the highway and into a road leading to Homeland Memorial Park.

When she questioned where the property was located, the woman said that Abdullah [Bishop] took out a firearm and asked her is she wanted to hold it.

Police say at that point, the woman asked to be taken home, but instead, alleges that Abdullah [Bishop] stopped the vehicle and raped her.

Police say they have since recovered the firearm which the woman spoke about in her report.

Adel Abdullah [Bishop] is charged with one count of rape.
