A SECURITY officer who discovered his workmate with an alleged rape victim gave evidence in the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Vitori Tabua had to jump over the Suva Flea Market main gate to find Lepani Tuitoga standing over a woman with his trousers unbuttoned, the court was told.

Mr Tuitoga, also a security officer at the Flea Market, allegedly raped a young woman inside the market.

He is alleged to have invited the woman and her boyfriend, who had been on a pub crawl, inside the flea market. It's further alleged the woman had sex with her boyfriend and then was raped by Mr Tuitoga.

Mr Tabua said on December 26, 2012, around 7am, he had knocked off work and was heading for the security office inside the flea market but found the gate locked.

He said he jumped over the gate, searched the premises and saw the woman sitting on a carton while Mr Tuitoga was standing up with his trouser buttons undone.

He said the woman told him Mr Tuitoga had forced himself on her twice.

According to Mr Tabua, the accused was not allowing the woman to leave, so he helped her out and walked with the accused and the woman to the Market Police Post.

The case continues.
