An ex-convict is in police custody in connection with a rape investigation at Choiseul, law enforcement sources have told the Times.
The suspect is reported to have served time for the stabbing death of a man.
The ex-convict is accused of dragging a twenty-two year old woman into some bushes and forcing himself on her.
Passers-by are reported to have caught the man in the act.
According to reports, they held the man, tied him up and handed him over to the police.
Another rape was reported on Tuesday morning at Gadette, Dennery, involving a seven year old female.
Details of that incident are sketchy.
