Browne’s Avenue woman attacked and raped in her own home; earlier victim says level of awareness needs to be heightened

A rapist seems to be on the prowl, once again, and has attacked and
raped a Browne’s Avenue woman.

Police are now investigating the incident in which a 25-year-old
female was sexually violated.

According to reports, the victim telephoned the Criminal
Investigations Department (CID) and reported that she had been
raped by a lone masked man. 

The offence reportedly occurred at about 4:45 a.m. on Saturday, July
8, at her Browne’s Avenue home, and the victim is said to be
traumatized by the ordeal.

This is the latest in a series of reported rapes in an area that runs
from Creekside to Golden Grove and down to Browne’s Avenue.
Another victim of a sexual assault complained to REAL News, earlier
this year, that the Police are downplaying these crimes against
women instead of raising the level of awareness.

That woman said the experience terrified her and has since made
her fearful of being alone.

Meanwhile, other women – especially single females – tell our
Newsroom they will not be going out at night during the upcoming
Carnival festivities since they are afraid of returning home alone.
