The police in Hanover have charged 21-year-old Renardo Humphrey, otherwise called 'Nardo', a labourer of Middlesex in the parish, for allegedly breaking into the house of a disabled woman and raping her.

Humphrey was charged with rape and burglary on Sunday after a question and answer session.

The police report that about 2:20 a.m. on Thursday, June 24, the disabled woman securely locked up her house in Mount Carmel district in the parish and went to bed.

He allegedly then proceeded to sexually assault her before leaving.

He was subsequently arrested last week Thursday.
