Police have arrested and charged 51-year-old Eugene Reneau for the crime of rape.

According to a police report, they acted on information received and visited an area at Mile 10 ½ on the Phillip Goldson Highway at around 2 a.m. on Friday, March 28th. About ten feet from the side of the road, in a swampy over grown area, police saw a man and woman of creole descent. According to police, it seemed as if the man was covering the woman’s mouth and holding her against her will as she struggled to escape. Police ordered them to come out of the swamp and the woman ran to police and told them that she had been raped. The 26-year-old woman told them that the man held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her if she did not have sex with him. Fearing for her life, she complied with her attacker. The alleged rapist was detained and the woman was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where she was examined by a medical doctor.

On Monday, Eugene Reneau, also known as Portion, was escorted to the Belize City Magistrates Court and charged with a single count of rape. No plea was taken due to the nature of the offense and bail was denied. Reneau will be remanded at the Belize Central Prison until his next scheduled court appearance on March 28th.
