TEAKETTLE VILLAGE, Cayo District, Tues. Oct. 16, 2018– A German woman was robbed and raped in Teakettle on Friday, October 12, after she hitched a ride with a man on a motorcycle who was accompanied by two other men on another motorcycle.
The woman, 44, a sales manager and resident of Cayo, reported to police that around 10 p.m. on Friday, she was socializing in San Ignacio and hitched a ride to Belmopan with the aforementioned man on a motorcycle.
Instead of taking her to Belmopan, however, the men took her to a construction site in Teakettle.
One of the men then robbed her of her cell phone, which is valued at $240, while the other two men raped her.
Although she did not previously know the men, she was able to give a description of them, and police were able to detain one suspect. Today, they formally arrested and charged Sharn Vanegas, 31, a construction worker of Teakettle, for the crime of rape. Police are still looking for the other suspects.
