Photo credit: flags.netBRADES, Montserrat (GIU) –The Royal Montserrat Police Service (RMPS) is asking the public to be vigilant after a woman was sexually assaulted in the early morning of Saturday, January 28, 2012.Deputy Commissioner of Police Paul Morris said, “We are concerned about the increase of sexual assaults that have taken place over the past number of months. During the early hours of Saturday a woman was raped in Davy Hill and the level of violence used during this and other attacks is a serious cause for concern.”This is the fourth incidence of rape since October 2011. On average, Montserrat has one rape case per year, discounting statutory rapes of minors. The police officer said they are looking at possible linkages and connections between three of the cases as there are some similarities. Two of the assaults took place in Davy Hill and the third in Lookout. The fourth assault is an allegation of multiple rape near a supermarket in Davy Hill.Morris is advising women to be cautious and vigilant, making sure doors and windows are secure before retiring to bed at nights as three of the incidents took place in the home or very close to it after midnight. “Be careful about your own security.”The public are also called on to be more aware and not to make assumptions about why someone is calling for help. “Phone the police and let us decide,” the deputy commissioner of police cautioned.
