bodden-barnes (250x300).jpg(CNS): Police have now charged 32-year-old Jeffrey Barnes with another count of rape and one of abduction in connection with an incident which took place in Admiral’s Landing on 29 October. Barnes already faces charges for sexual assault, aggravated burglary and rape following his arrest on 1 November at an apartment in Ocean Club in the wake of three different reports of sexual assault where Barnes was believed to be the perpetrator. This latest charge relates to an assault on a 49 year old woman on 29 October in the middle of the morning. The woman was reportedly forced into the car Barnes was said to be driving and taken to Admiral's Landing, where she was assaulted.

Earlier that same morning the 32 year old sexual predator who has previous convictions for rape and sexual assault had tried to lure an eleven year old girl into the car but had been unsuccessful but later forced the victim who was waiting for a bus into his vehicle.

Barnes is expected in court later today and Tuesday 6 December but police are believed to still be investigating a further accusation made against Barnes in relation to an incident which took place a few days before the rape in Admiral’s landing. He has also been charged with rape in connection with an assault on a teenage relative.
