Angry that his ex-lover rejected his request to reconcile, a man is said to have sexually assaulted the 28-year-old woman with a hot pepper.

According to a police report, around 5:30 pm on Wednesday, the woman went to visit her ex-boyfriend at his South Oropouche home because it was his birthday.  The two met and reportedly had a few alcoholic beverages.  

The victim said she and her ex-boyfriend then left that residence in his vehicle.  He reportedly asked her to plait his hair, which she did.

The woman told police her ex then asked her to rekindle their relationship, but she refused. In a fit of rage, the man is said to have physically assaulted her, in addition to rubbing a hot pepper in her genital area and inserted it into her body.  

The woman said she demanded that her ex take her home and as she came out of the vehicle, she raised an alarm.  The man drove off. 

She was treated at the Point Fortin Area Hospital and discharged.

Oropouche police are investigating.
