En­ter­tain­ment co­or­di­na­tor linked to other rape cases

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS THE WEEKEND STAR - MELVILLE HAR­RIS STAR Writer

For­mer RIU en­ter­tain­ment co­or­di­na­tor, 24-year-old Demar Scott, who was re­cently charged with rap­ing two guests at the ho­tel, is now fac­ing more heat.

This, as he is now in the cus­tody of the St El­iz­a­beth po­lice to be ques­tioned by de­tec­tives in con­nec­tion with an in­ci­dent com­mit­ted in the Castleton area of the Bala­clava com­mu­nity in 2012.

The dis­clo­sure was made by the act­ing head of the St El­iz­a­beth Po­lice Divi­sion, Deputy Su­per­in­ten­dent Leroy Minott, while ad­dress­ing the monthly meet­ing of the St El­iz­a­beth Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion.

SIX YEARS AGO

Minott said that Scott is likely to be charged with rape and other crimes com­mit­ted in Bala­clava in 2012.

“Foren­sic ev­i­dence has linked Scott to the in­ci­dent in­volv­ing rape, bur­glary, and rob­bery in Bala­clava six years ago,” Minott said.

The Manch­ester po­lice are also await­ing the ar­rival of Scott from St El­iz­a­beth, as he will be placed on iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pa­rades in re­la­tion to six rape cases in Man­dev­ille last year.

Scott, who was charged last week by the St James po­lice with two counts of rape, il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of firearm and am­mu­ni­tion, as­sault and griev­ous sex­ual as­sault, was ear­lier this week re­manded when he ap­peared in the St James Par­ish Court.
