A resident of Ambergris Caye is in serious trouble with the law after three women have accused him of rape. The three victims reported to San Pedro Police that they were raped by 21-year-old Eric Gutierrez inside their rooms in the wee hours on Friday September 6th.

According to San Pedro Police, a 36-year-old Belizean bartender of Pescador Drive in San Pedro Town reported that at about 3AM on Friday she was inside her apartment room sleeping along with her roommate, a 28 year old Honduran waitress. She told police that they were awakened by a knock on their apartment door and proceeded to inquire who it was. When they opened the door, a man pushed another female inside the room. The third female is a 25 year old Guatemalan waitress who lives in the rear room of the same apartment. The man, who was later identified as Gutierrez, allegedly had a knife on the woman’s neck and once inside, demanded that all the women remove their clothes. It is alleged that Gutierrez then stabbed one of the three women on her foot, at which point, fearing for their lives, they removed their clothes. The women told police that he proceeded to take turns in having sexual intercourse with them against their will.

SAN PEDRO MAN RAPED 3 WOMEN IN ONE ROOM

Police say Eric Gutierrez, 21, broke into one woman’s room, forced her into another room with two other women, and raped them all

A San Pedro Ambergris Caye man has been charged with raping three women early Saturday morning, September 7, at about 3:00, at their rented room in an apartment building on the island.

Eric Gutierrez, 21, a labourer of Pescador Drive, San Pedro, was taken to the San Pedro Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, September 11, and remanded until October 28 on three counts of rape, grievous harm and aggravated burglary.

Two of the women told police that they were sleeping in their apartment on Pescador Drive when about 3:00 Saturday morning, they were awakened by a knock on their door. When they opened their door to see what was happening, Gutierrez, whom they knew, was holding another woman with a knife to her throat, and he pushed the woman into their room.

The woman was a 25-year-old Guatemalan who was a tenant in the same apartment building. Gutierrez, with a butcher knife in his hand, ordered the three women to take off all their clothes.

One of the women refused to undress, and Gutierrez stabbed her in her leg, the women said. Fearing for their lives after the stabbing, the women complied with his demands, and they were raped in turn. After raping them, Gutierrez, they said, walked out of the room.

The Guatemalan woman, for her part, told police that she was sleeping in her room when Gutierrez broke into her room and dragged her out at knifepoint to the other women’s room.

Police were called, and the victims were taken to the police station, where they made a formal report, and then they were taken to the San Pedro Polyclinic, where they signed consent forms for full examinations to be conducted on them.

The woman who was stabbed in the leg was treated and released. At the end of the examinations, the doctor who conducted the exams concluded that the women indeed had been raped.

Police began an investigation, and Eric Gutierrez was picked up on Monday and identified by the women as the man who had raped them. Gutierrez was detained over the September 10 holiday, and on Wednesday, September 11, was taken to court, where he was remanded.

According to police, they had picked up Gutierrez on two previous occasions after two different women had come forward to report that they had been sexually assaulted by him, but the women had not requested court action against him, and he was released without being charged.

Charges against “Gato” Gutierrez for rape of 3 women dismissed

The details of an apparently strange case of multiple rape unfolded this morning when Justice Adolph Lucas dismissed 3 counts of rape and 3 counts of wounding that had been brought against Eric “Gato” Gutierrez, an auto mechanic of San Pedro Town, who was 21 at the time of the incident.

Justice Lucas dismissed the charges after the virtual complainants, three women, failed to appear in court for the second time. The women were first summoned to come to court on October 2 and when they did not show up, they were summoned again.

Justice Lucas said that he is satisfied that they are not interested in pursuing the charges, and he dismissed the charges.

The alleged incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on September 6, 2013 at an apartment in San Pedro Town. One of the complainants, a Guatemalan national who was 25 years old at the time, gave the police a statement in which she said she left her apartment to go and buy a burrito and while she was returning home, she noticed that she was being followed by Gutierrez.

She said Gutierrez, who was armed with a knife, accosted her by the door of her apartment. She said a struggle ensued between them and during that struggle, Gutierrez apparently lost the knife.

She said she ran to the apartment where two of her friends, a Belizean and a Honduran, resided, and while she was at the door, Gutierrez caught up with her and this time he had a screwdriver.

The other two complainants said in their statements that they heard knocks on their door and when they opened it, they saw that the person at the door was their friend, the Guatemalan bartender. They said Gutierrez followed her inside and he demanded that she hand over all the money from the bar sales.

They said that when their friend (the Guatemalan) told him she did not have the money, he stabbed her in her left breast with the screwdriver, and he ordered them to take off their clothes, and they complied.

One of the complainants, the Belizean, who was 36 years old at the time, said that Gutierrez ordered her to perform oral sex on her friend, the Honduran, and she did as he had ordered because she feared for her life.

According to the third woman, the Guatemalan, while her friends were engaged in oral sex, Gutierrez raped her.

The Belizean said that after she had had oral sex with her Honduran friend, Gutierrez stabbed her in her leg and raped her.

According to her report, Gutierrez then raped the Honduran, after stabbing her in her hand.

They said that afterwards, Gutierrez who seemed to have been under the influence of some kind of drug, returned to a normal state of mind and offered to get water for one of them who was having fainting spells.

She said that when Gutierrez left to get the water, they went and got help from a man who was living in the front room. She said when Gutierrez returned with the water, the man told him to leave and he left. It was at that point that they called the police, she said.

But although the charges were dismissed, Gutierrez was not freed because he is serving a sentence of 5 years for burglary.

Gutierrez was not represented by any attorney. Crown Counsel Sheringe Rodriguez represented the Crown.
