The police have reported that investigation is underway after an alleged rape attempt was reported in the early hours of Sunday May 8 on Praslin.
The incident is reported to have taken place on Eve Island in Baie Ste Anne. A 21-year-old lady told the police that her aggressor was a member of local musical group Zanfan Move, thus leading to the arrest of the named suspect. However, following their investigations, the police established that the Zanfan Move musical group member had nothing to do with the incident, so he was released unconditionally and a 29-year-old non-Seychellois man working on Praslin was arrested and is being investigated.
Investigation in the case continues.
The police have also reported that they have interdicted a 30-year-old male constable following report of an indecent act offence on an 18-year-old lady. The constable who was off duty at the time the incident was reported is being accused by the lady of inserting his hand into her pants. Investigation in the case is ongoing. The alleged incident which took place at La Gogue was reported to the police early yesterday morning.
A 31-year-old lady of Pointe Au Sel has been admitted to the Hermitte Ward of the Seychelles Hospital following an accident reported yesterday morning on the Providence Highway opposite the Cascade market. It was reported that the lady, alone in a Terios Jeep at the time of the accident, lost control of her vehicle which overturned and went off the road while on her way towards Victoria.
While the vehicle sustained significant damage, the victim suffered from scratches and was complaining of pain in her leg and waist.
