(CNS): Jeffrey Barnes (30) has been charged with abducting and raping a 16-year-old girl and is expected to appear in court today. Police say that, shortly after midnight on Tuesday 30 March, a 16-year-old girl reported to police that she had been sexually assaulted by a man who had offered her a ride home from a bar in the Mary Street area of George Town. The man, instead of taking her home as agreed, had taken her to an isolated beach location and raped her.

Barnes, a Caymanian from the George Town area, was arrested the next day, the 31 March. He has now been formally charged with rape, abduction, threatening violence and is expected to appear in court later today, Monday 12 April.
