Man, 36, remanded over rape of 72-year-old woman

Harold Singh

A 36-year-old man accused of raping a 72-year-old grandmother was yesterday re-manded to prison by Magistrate Oscar Parvatan.

Harold Singh of Sophia allegedly had carnal knowledge of the woman without her consent on August 14.

Singh in his defence told the magistrate that the woman went to the police station yesterday and asked him to settle the matter.

He informed the court that he told her that he had only slapped her. "Ah tell she in front of de officer that all ah do was pull she and slap she."

The accused told the court that the complainant sent him to the shop to buy white rum and cigarettes.

There was an argument and the woman became upset and pelted a bottle at him.

Singh was not required to plead to the indictable charge of rape and he has to return to court tomorrow where the question of bail will be addressed by Magistrate Parvatan.
