Police Commissioner Atlee Rodney strongly denounced the brazen daylight rape of a woman on Monday, emphasizing the unwavering dedication of law enforcement to apprehending the culprits.
He stated, “We are taking those things seriously because that should not have happened and we do not want it to happen.
And anyone that we will pursue them, we are pursuing them and we will pursue anybody that tries to disrespect our female population like that.
So it’s something that it is very distasteful to us and we are dead serious to go after persons who are trying to do things like that.”
A woman was rapped and robbed by a group of men while she was walking just off Friars Hill Road at 4:40 pm.
The report on the incident led to widespread outrage and condemnation.
