Police have not release any information but a man working and living in San Pedro Town was today arraigned in court before Chief Magistrate Margaret McKenzie for the charge of rape. The man has been identified as Jody Adulfos. It is alleged that the rape victim visited San Pedro Town with another friend and they both socialized until the wee hours of the morning of April 5th. But when the ladies went to sleep that morning to Adulfos’ house, the victim was alleged rape.
The incident was reported to San Pedro Police, who have remain tight lips about the case. After Adulfos was picked up he was taken to Belize City for an identification parade since police on the island could not find other people meeting Adulfos’ description. The identification parade was conducted yesterday and the victim allegedly pointed Adulfos out to police.
In court number 1 this morning, Adulfos was charged for a single count of rape. Because the case is indictable, Adulfos was remanded to prison until his next court appearance in San Pedro Town on June 21st.
