Man held in connection with rape
A non-national man is in police custody assisting with a rape complaint made by a flight attendant.
Reports indicate that the incident allegedly occurred on March 5, at a local hotel and reported to the Hastings-Worthing Police Station the following morning.
Police yesterday confirmed that a report had been made by the flight attendant who was overnighting in Barbados.
In a response to the British press, lawmen say there is no need to fear for one’s safety while on island.
“We wish to reassure the general public, visitors to Barbados and readers who may have been alerted to this matter that our investigations suggest that this is an isolated matter. We have not received any reports of random personal attacks on females (local or visitors),” the release said. (Nation News)
