RIU Reggae

The man accused of raping two American tourists at the RIU Reggae Hotel in Montego Bay, St. James late last month has been charged.

Demar Scott, who was arrested over a week ago, was charged on Sunday with two counts of rape, two counts of grievous sexual assault, two counts of assault with intent to rob, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. Scott, who was employed to the hotel as an entertainment coordinator, is booked to appear in court on Wednesday.

 One of the women told US media that a gunman stormed into the room through the balcony door and demanded money. 

She said he later raped them before she managed to get hold of his gun and shot him twice in his arm. 

He ran out the door and jumped off the balcony.

  Scott reportedly denied that he raped the women and told investigators he was having consensual sex with them when one of them became jealous, pulled a firearm, and shot him.

 However, Scott has been listed as a person of interest for several cases of sexual assault committed last year.
