Jeffrey Barnes.jpg(CNS): Police have now charged 32 year old Jeffery Barnes with one count of sexual assault following his arrest on Tuesday. Barnes is expected to appear in summary court sometime today (Friday 4 November) when his case will be remitted to the Grand Court. Police stated that the charge relates to an assault on a 17-year-old female in the George Town area on Thursday 27 October. Barnes was also wanted by police in connection with a rape of a 49 year old woman on Saturday morning in Admiral’s Landing and police said that enquiries into this and at least one other reported case are on-going.

Barnes is suspected to have raped one of his own family members as well as another woman who made a report to police from overseas on the evening before officers apprehended the suspected serial rapist at an apartment in Ocean Club in Spotts.

Police also reported that a short time before the attack that Barnes is suspected of committing on the women in Admiral’s Landing on Saturday morning he had also reportedly attempted to lure an 11 year old girl in to his car.
