Tonight 37 year old Michael Martinez, a radio announcer from the Corozal District is facing the long arms of the law after he was accused of rape.
According to an 18 year old woman, around 9:30pm on November 20th, she went to Martinez’s work located in the Rainbow Town area of Corozal Town to talk to him.
The woman stated to police that Martinez had promised to give her some answers to questions that he would ask on a giveaway program in order for her to win a cellular phone.
Reports are that when the 18 year old arrived at the radio station, instead of giving her the answers, Martinez pushed her into a room located at the back of the building and had sexual intercourse with her against her will.
A medical examination has confirmed that the 18 year old was carnally known. As a result police arrested Martinez and charged him for the crime of rape.
CTV3 News understands that at the time of the incident Martinez was not on duty and should not have been at the radio station. We were also made to understand that Martinez is only a volunteer radio announcer at the station. Proprietors of the building are considering filing charges of trespassing against Martinez.
