Wednesday, December 31, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: In March of 2014, now 45 year old Vanzie Lamb, a laborer of Barracat Street in Belize City, was acquitted of a charge of rape of a 14 year old female minor originally from Punta Gorda in May of 2009 while she was visiting Belize City for a party.
But he has been arrested for a similar incident reported on Boxing Day, December 26.
The complainant is a 22 year old woman who told police that around 12:30 in the morning she was walking on Antelope Street Extension when she met a man who grabbed her hair and forced her at knife-point onto his silver and purple female beach cruiser bicycle.
The assailant threatened to kill her if she did not have sexual intercourse with him and then took her to an abandoned house on Barracat Street where he forced himself on her.
In court, Lamb, who did not give a plea as the offence is to be tried on indictment if proven, admitted that he took the woman to his house but insisted that any intercourse between them was consensual and that the woman is a friend of his.
Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer declined to offer bail, upholding the objection of prosecutors that Lamb has been charged with a similar offence and has a criminal record.
He was taken to prison and will return to court on February 23.
