A Golden Grove woman remains traumatized, after she was sexually violated by a man who broke into her home.
Reports say the 22-year-old victim was awakened by a masked male figure standing at her bedside. It is alleged that he asked about a ring she wore on her finger and the woman told him he could have it.
Allegedly, the intruder then instructed her to remove her underwear and then committed the illegal act.
Reportedly, the alleged offender was dressed in a pair of long blue jeans and a black long-sleeved, turtleneck shirt. He is said to be dark in complexion, of a medium build, and about 5’ 8” in height.
It is alleged that the ordeal left the woman visibly shaken.
A report of the rape was made to the Grays Farm Police Station by a 911 operator.
Officers visited the scene to conduct investigations and interviewed the victim in the presence of a relative.
When the police made checks of the house, they reportedly discovered that the alleged rapist had used a cement block and a blue drum to gain height and access a bedroom window that was closed, but not locked.
Reportedly, he made his escape through a living room door.
Officers searched the surrounding areas for anyone fitting the description of the perpetrator, but without success.
This offence reportedly occurred at about 3:29 a.m. on Thursday, February 23.
Meanwhile, a man who was facing a number of charges under the Sexual Offences Act has been acquitted.
He had been indicted on four counts of rape and four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a female.
The accused, who had pleaded not guilty to the charges, was found not guilty on all of them by a jury of his peers on Thursday, February 23.
The case was tried in the High Court before Justice Ann Marie Smith.
