A man from Belize City has been charged with the crime of rape against a teenaged girl from San Ignacio Town. Garth Longsworth, born on July 23, 1982, was charged for the crime on the 16 year old female at the instructions of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Gareth Longsworth who is a sales marketing manager of Cran Sreet in Belize City is accused of preying on the teenager at about 10:00 pm on March 7th while she was taking a brisk walk on Bullet Tree Road and just after buying some food at Maxim’s Restaurant.

The 21 year old Garth Longsworth was apparently waiting for his victim at the corner of Joseph Andrews Drive and Bullet Tree Road where he then proceeded to drag her behind a pharmacy located nearby and had sexual intercourse with her against her will.

It was the report made by the minor that led to the arrest of Garth Longsworth, whereupon San Ignacio Police immediately began an investigation.
