Just after 4AM on Wednesday 11 August, police were dispatched to Oak Mill Street in George Town where a woman informed them that she had been sexually assaulted.
The victim stated that she was at a bar in Bodden Town where she met an unknown male, who offered to take her home. When she agreed, she was told that he would be dropping a friend home in East End first. Both men and the victim travelled to East End, dropped the friend off and then headed in the direction of George Town, where he took her to a residence in the Windsor Park area and sexually assaulted her at knife point. The victim was able to get away from the man after the incident took place. She ran from the location and asked for assistance from residents in the area.
