    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – FOR the third time in as many months, a female was sexually assaulted at knifepoint in Basseterre.

     

    According to a police communiqué, at about 5:00 a.m. yesterday (Nov. 1), a male assailant held a female at knifepoint, pulled her into a nearby clump of bushes in the Basseterre area and sexually assaulted her.

    Investigations into the matter are ongoing and the police have made a special appeal to anyone who might have information that could lead to the apprehension of the perpetrator to contact the Special Victims Unit (SVU) by dialling 465-2241 ext. 4252.

    The SVU can also be reached via cell phone at 665-3091 and persons may also contact the nearest police station or call the Crime hotline at 707.

    This is the third time for the year that a female was sexually assaulted at knifepoint in the Basseterre area.

    Police had informed that an incident of sexual assault in the Basseterre area was reported at about 10:45 p.m. on Friday, September 6.

    Investigations revealed that a male assailant had held a young female at knifepoint, pulled her into an unoccupied building and sexually assaulted her.
