By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

A 19 year-old woman, who is six months pregnant, was raped near a bus stop in the Stann Creek District on Thursday evening.

The incident happened sometime after 3:00 p.m. while the young woman was at the bus stop at mile six, waiting for a bus. She told police that a dark skinned man, who wore a grey shirt tied around his nose and mouth, grabbed her from behind and dragged her to a nearby orchard, where he threw her on the ground, placed a knife to her neck and raped her, after which he fled.

Police are investigating, but have no suspects.
