One man is in police custody after he allegedly raped a 20-year-old woman that he met via Instagram.
The woman, who is from Marabella, told police that she began talking to the suspect on April 15.
The following day, after the conversation ‘went well’ she agreed to meet up with the suspect for a lime along Simeon Road, Petit Valley.
However, she said that while she was there, she was confronted, beaten, her life was threatened and she was forced to perform a series of sexual acts on the man.
The suspect also demanded the woman hand over all her cash, before ordering her to leave the home.
The woman managed to notify the police.
WPC Harry is continuing inquiries.
