A man was remanded on the charges of abduction, rape, illegal possession of firearm and assault at common law when he appeared in the Santa Cruz Resident Magistrate's Court.

Reports are that on April 20, the female complainant was walking home from a dance in the Lacovia area with a male companion sometime after 4 o'clock in the morning. It is alleged that the male companion stopped while the woman continued along and turned on to another road. There, she was forced into a house at gunpoint where she was sexually assaulted.

Subsequent reports were made to the police and the suspect was taken into custody and charged. The accused man is set to appear in court on May 6.
