The girl was rushed to a local medical centre for treatment.  Once there she told how she had met up with a man she had spoken to on Instagram and then been sexually assaulted.

The alleged perpetrator of the rape was located by officers from the Torrent Local Police. The victim had given a description of the man and the police located him at a local metro station.

After initially denying the attack the man said that he was in the area with his girlfriend. He pointed out a young woman who was supposedly his girlfriend. When questioned by officers though the “girlfriend” could not give the suspect’s name. He was soon arrested.


Officers from the National Police have taken over the case and are investigating. The man’s mobile phone is being looked at by officers who are looking into the Instagram conversation that the man had with the victim.
