Alarm on rape

POLICE have voiced their concerns over the safety of children following the alleged raped of two minors early this week.

According to police spokeswoman, Ana Naisoro, the two accused aged 31 and 21 years old were part of a drinking spree when the incident occurred.

It is alleged that the incident occurred between December 31, 2012 and January 1, 2013, when the two allegedly had carnal knowledge of two girls aged 14 and 15 years of age during a drinking party.

"The two have been charged with abduction and rape," Ms Naisoro said.

She said the 31-year-old was alleged to have made plans with the two victims to meet at a house.

The second accused then joined them where they consumed a carton of beer after which the alleged incident took place.

The two were expected to be produced in court yesterday afternoon.

"However on this note it continues to be a concern that the two minors were caught in such a situation whereby they were exposed to an environment of drinking with people they had just met," Ms Naisoro said.

She said the Police Force was hoping more discussion could be carried out on this issue within the family fold as the youth should be made aware of the dangers of getting involved in such drinking parties with strangers.

"We are pleading with parents and guardians to seriously take this issue on board and always know of their children's whereabouts," she added.
