Trinidad – St Joseph police are investigating a report in which an 18-year-old woman was allegedly raped in St Augustine.
The woman told police the incident took place around midday on Saturday.
That was her first day as a receptionist at a massage parlour in Santa Margarita, St Augustine.
Only 12 hours earlier, she had been hired after responding to a report she had seen in a newspaper’s classified ads.
The woman told police that while at the parlour, she was working when her manager came and told her he was short-staffed that day and he wanted her to give a client a massage.
She was given instructions on how to perform her duties on the man’s back and she was sent to a room in the building where she saw a man lying on a bed.
She told police that at the time the man was lying face down on the bed.
As the woman began to massage the man, he allegedly got up and forced her onto the ground where he sexually assaulted her.
The woman raised an alarm and was able to fight off the assailant.
She then fled the scene and notified the police. WPC Collins is continuing inquiries. (Trinidadexpress.com)
