The entertainment coordinator accused of raping two American women at the Riu Hotel in Montego Bay last Thursday night is denying the allegation.
The 23-year-old from Manchester is contending that he had consensual sex with both women but the women are adamant that they were raped.
His attorney says he has not yet been charged but he remains in custody and is being further interrogated by the police.
He told the police that he and a contractor, who was a guest at the hotel, had struck up a friendship with the female guests. He said arrangements were made for him and the contractor, who is a licenced firearm holder to have sex with both women.
He said he arranged with the women to use the balcony to enter their hotel room in order to avoid security cameras. He said that while having sex with one of the women, she declared her love for him. He said the other woman then took possession of the contractor’s gun and he was shot in the arm as he tried to relieve her of it.
Meanwhile, Director of Compliance at the Firearms Licensing Authority Captain Cleveland Crooks says the contractor in question has been questioned by the FLA and they are trying to get to the bottom of the incident to determine what happened.
The police are investigating whether the entertainment coordinator is connected to several incidents of rape in Manchester. In March this year, the Manchester police had issued a $35,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
He was employed by Riu in September on the recommendation of a St. Catherine Justice of the Peace.
The police are continuing their investigations.
