Nationwide News understands that multiple criminal charges have been laid on a 23-year old former entertainment coordinator at the Riu hotel in Montego Bay, St James, Demar Scott.

Our sources say Scott has been charged with two counts of assault with intent to rob and two counts of rape. He’s also been charged with two counts of grievous sexual assault.

An illegal possession of firearm and ammunition charge has also been laid on the former Riu employee. He was charged yesterday by the Constabulary’s Criminal Investigation Branch, CIB.

Scott remains in custody this afternoon. He’s to appear in the Montego Bay Criminal Court on Wednesday, October 10.

Scott is alleged to have used a balcony to break into a room at the hotel two weeks ago.

It’s further alleged that he raped at gunpoint two female guests of the hotel who are from the United States.

His Attorney, Suyane Kimberley Phillips, told our news center that her client is denying the allegations.

Miss Phillips says Scott has alleged that he had sexual activity with both women but it was consensual and prearranged. But, the women have insisted that they were raped by Scott.

In the meantime, the Manchester Police on the weekend confirmed reports by our news centre that Scott is wanted in that parish for several cases of rape. He’s to be questioned about those cases at a later date.

It’s understood that the St. Elizabeth police are also investigating Scott in relation to other sex crimes.
