Man jailed for role in sex attack


Tribune Court Reporter


A MAN charged in connection with a recent home invasion and abetting the sexual assault of a woman was sentenced to 24 months prison in court for a separate stealing charge.

Dennis Ingraham, 26, faced Magistrate Algernon Allen, Jr, this week on a charge of stealing.

This comes a week after Ingraham was charged before Magistrate Samuel McKinney of abetment to rape, abetment to burglary and two counts of abetment to armed robbery.

According to police reports, it is alleged that around 5am on January 10, three men armed with handguns broke into a married couple’s residence on Marshall Road. While there it is said that the suspects tied up the couple as well as their visiting relatives and stole a variety of items.

It is during this same home invasion that one of the suspects raped the woman homeowner before they all fled the scene.

For this offence, the accused was informed that he will return to court on March 13 for service of his voluntary bill of indictment which will transfer this matter to the Supreme Court.

Regarding his separate stealing charge, Ingraham was sentenced to 24 months at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services by Magistrate Allen.
