Gar­daí probe rape claim

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By SINEAD KELLEHER

GAR­DAÍ in Tralee say an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a rape al­leged to have oc­cured in the town a fort­night ago is at ‘an ad­vanced stage’.

The fe­male vic­tim - who is un­der­stood to be a third-level stu­dent in Tralee – was ex­am­ined at the Sex­ual As­sault Treat­ment Unit in Cork in the im­me­di­ate af­ter­math of the in­ci­dent.

Gar­daí have al­ready ex­am­ined ex­ten­sive CCTV footage in the course of their in­ves­ti­ga­tion. A se­nior garda source con­firmed that a num­ber of peo­ple were in­ter­viewed this week in con­nec­tion with the al­leged in­ci­dent. They de­scribed the garda probe as be­ing at ‘an ad­vanced stage’.
