A young couple was attacked and forced to have intercourse with each other as their attacker looked on, on Thursday in an area called Cumaca Road in Valencia. The incident reportedly took place at around 11am.

According to reports, the victims had been hiking together when the armed assailant stopped them, demanding that they proceed to a nearby river. He subsequently robbed them of their mobile phones and a quantity of cash, before forcing them to commit the sexual display. The 25-year-old woman was also raped by the perpetrator as he held a knife to her throat.

The man escaped following the attack and the couple filed a report at the Valencia Police Station. They were both taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding the perpetrator of this heinous crime. Anyone with information that could lead to his arrest, is asked to contact CRIME STOPPERS at 800-TIPS or the nearest police station.
