The Corporate Communication Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force says the Centre for the Investigations of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) has launched an investigation into the matter.

The sex crime unit of the police force is investigating a video circulating on social media with an apparent female pleading to a male to leave her alone.

The three minute and 33 second video is mostly blurred while shouting and screaming is heard on several occasions.

The Corporate Communication Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force says the Centre for the Investigations of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) has launched an investigation into the matter.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre has been unable to reach the head of CISOCA, Superintendent Enid Ross, to ascertain the nature of the investigation.

The video has sparked outrage on Facebook, with hundreds calling for sanctions against the alleged perpetrator whose name was called several times in the video by the female.

At one point, the female told the male that he would not like what he was doing to her, to be done to his female relatives.

“Please, yuh wouldn’t waan nuhbadi duh your sister dem so ... just don’t duh mi so ... please", she begged.

“Stop di noise”, the male responded.

Meanwhile, posts on a Facebook page bearing the first name of the male mentioned in the video, rejected the criticisms.

The posts suggested that the person knows the female and sought to explain that the video was published out of anger.

He rejected accusations of rape.
