A teenage male is wanted by Soufriere police in connection with a report that he attempted to rape a fifty-two year old woman, law enforcement sources have told St Lucia Times.
The alleged incident occurred on Sunday at around 3:20 am near the Fond St Jacques Roman Catholic church in Soufriere.
Law enforcement sources told St Lucia Times that it was reported that the woman was seated near the church building when a male in his late teens approached, grabbed her and dragged the screaming woman to an area at the side of the church, where he proceeded to rip off her underwear.
