Marty Offline

A 15 year old girl was raped in San Pedro Town by a masked man. It happened in the san Pablo area when she was sleeping on Friday morning at 3:00 am. The girl told police that she was awakened by a masked man lying on top of her and covering her mouth telling her to be quiet. She tried to push him off her but he held her down and took out what appeared to be a hand gun, placed it to her throat and threatened her. He then raped her - which was confirmed in a medical examination. Police don't have much to go on because he wore the mask, but they do know that he told the girl that he had been watching her for a long time. He was of light complexion with a beard.

San Pedro police are currently looking for a rapist described as having a light complexion with a bearded chin, who broke into a home on Friday, August 7, and raped a 15 year old female.

The girl reported to police that around 3:00 that morning, she was awoken by someone lying on top of her in her bedroom and covering her mouth.

The person told her to shut up and threatened her with a hand gun when she attempted to push him off, then proceeding to have sexual intercourse with the minor against her will.

A medical examination confirmed that the 15 year old was indeed carnally known. Police investigations continue.

Without regard to the first part of your comment, it still doesn't sound quite right.

The public and private shaming of rape victims when they report the crimes is exactly the reason so few girls and women feel safe or comfortable doing so.

"Only about 2% of all rape and related sex charges are determined to be false, the same percentage as for other felonies (FBI). So while they do happen, and they are very problematic when they do, people claim that allegations are false far more frequently than they are and far more frequently than for other crimes. Put another way, we are much more likely to disbelieve a woman if she says she was raped than if she says she was robbed, but for no good reason.

On a related note, only about 40% of rapes are ever reported to the police, and this is partly because victims know that if their claim becomes public, their every behavior will be scrutinized, they will be shamed for their sexual history, and they will be labeled as lunatic, psychotic, paranoid, and manipulative. Just because someone does not report their crime does not mean it did not happen. Furthermore, only one in two claims lead to prosecution, so if the DA decides not to prosecute, that says nothing about whether or not it happened.

Thank you for the facts and stats CollyK.

What an awful thing to happen. In Belize there is no such thing as consensual intercourse with a minor. It is rape.
