By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that police have detained 3 of the 4 culprits who attacked and raped a 14-year-old teen in Belize City.

The minor reported that on January 8, she had gone to the store and was returning home when the attackers pulled her off her bike and took her into a dark area and raped her.

During a recent media interview, the minor and her mom said that the authorities had not detained any of the perpetrators.

However, Compol Williams said that 3 of the 4 attackers are in custody and will be charged.

“The police officers did give the report the urgency needed. The young lady was immediately taken for medical treatment to be examined. That was done. The police officers visited the area, found where the incident actually occurred. Valuable evidence was found there. Those were taken, collected as evidence. And shortly thereafter, police detained three of the young men who did this act and they’re in custody, awaiting to be charged,” Williams said.

“I think the issue may be that the police need to do more in terms of giving feedback to complainants. Perhaps they felt That that nothing was being done because the police was not giving them feedback. So that is something we have to address internally,” Williams added.
