A WOMAN was sexually assaulted, beaten and thrown into waters at Potter’s Cay on Monday morning in a shocking attack, police said. 

A 41-year-old man is in custody in connection with the incident and police said they were searching for another suspect yesterday. 

The attack took place shortly after 1am on Monday. Police said a Bahamian woman was at the waterfront at Potter’s Cay when she was beaten, sexually assaulted by two men and thrown into the ocean.Five hours later, she was rescued by a passing vessel and was taken to hospital and later discharged. It is unclear whether the woman knew her attackers.

Police statistics indicated reported rapes increased last year by six percent over 2017. Police Commissioner Anthony Ferguson’s 2019 policing plan, which was tabled in Parliament in April, signalled the organisation’s plans to put a greater focus on tackling sexual offences. 

Earlier this year, Chief Superintendent Solomon Cash said high visibility policing will continue throughout the capital. His comments were in response to the alleged abduction and sexual assault of two young women in May.

Police = Blaa, blaa, blaa, blaa, blaa, blaa Citizens = Get of your A$$%s and out of your comfortable police cars and do police work, patrol areas, check areas, man areas, put in a little more effort because the criminals ( rapist, murderers, thieves ) are on the move while you guys seem to be sleeping

So true. The police drive around with their windows up and AC blasting and don't have a clue what is going on around them. You could be naked and screaming bloody murder for hours on the side of our streets and the police wouldn't hear or see a thing.

Mandela & Readers alike,

NOTE: actions are born out of thoughts; and thoughts, originates from indoctrination, teachings and experiences. The issues of rapist, murderers and thieves are consequences of our own social culture. There is a need to institute reform throughout our education cultural and social institution so that we can produce and culture citizens that know and accept that we all are to "love our neighbor as ourselves".

To blame these social ills on the police is misplaced. I have said it before and will say it here again: LEADERS CAN LEAD YOU ONLY AS FAR AS THEY THEMSELVES HAVE GONE.

The people are simple following their leaders in the path of barbarianism which they are leading. You need not look any further than the House of Assembly and the recent report of the $8,000,000.00 under-the-table bribe for the contract to build boats for the Defence Force.

If Members of Parliament can take what they want without consideration - lacking self discipline and restraint - why should the ordinary citizens be any different?.
