Man charged with rape assisting police with investigations into other crimes

Police have charged Ashley Augustine with two counts of rape and one count each of burglary and robbery with violence.

Thirty-three year old Augustine of Hope in St. Andrew is alleged to have committed the offences in early April.

Last week, a petition was being circulated on the internet, alleging that Augustine was responsible for the rape of a 77-year old woman on the sister island of Carriacou, and asking the authorities to intervene and have him arrested.

Following that petition, police launched a man-hunt for him. He was caught within one day of the manhunt being launched.

On Thursday, a release from the Police indicated that Augustine is still in custody and is assisting them with their investigations in a series of other ‘serious offences’.©
