By Breaking Belize News Staff: Damion Edward Saldano, 22, who had been detained in connection with an investigation into a rape of a 15-year-old girl was charged for allegedly threatening a female officer during his detention.

“I nuh rape, I kill,” Saldano allegedly told a female officer while he was detained in connection with the investigation. He allegedly also told her, “I wa deal with yuh ina the streets.”

He appeared in court unrepresented and intially pleaded guilty to a charge of using threatening words but said he only pleaded guilty because there were so many other people around at the time when the comment was made. The Magistrate then entered an unequivocal not guilty plea on his behalf.

He was granted bail of $300 plus one surety of the same and is due back in court on November 3.
