FSM Consul General upset over teen's abduction & rape

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Consul General's Office for the Federated States of Micronesia is asking the community to come forward if they have any information related to this past weekend's rape of a 15-year-old Mangilao girl.

"It's unfortunate that it happened and we just learned today that the victim is one of our citizens and we are not forgetting these problems," said Robson Romolow. It's problems like this past weekend's incident where a teenage girl was allegedly abducted and raped in Mangilao that is again stirring up concern from within the FSM community. The teen alleges she was grabbed from the side of the road near the Green Park Condos sometime between 9 and 10pm Saturday. A cloth was placed over her head and she was taken to a secluded jungle area where four men raped her repeatedly.

Men she described to police were in a dark colored sedan and were of Chuukese descent.

Romolow, the FSM Consul General's senior foreign affairs officer, spoke on behalf of Consul General Robert Ruecho today, telling KUAM News, "I'm encouraging our citizens out there especially that have committed this horrible crime these are not acceptable here on Guam and also back home in the FSM."

Police are still investigating and until GPD's Criminal Investigation Division gets new leads, Romolow has a message for the local Micronesian community. "So I encourage everybody be vigilant and look out and if you know who these people are please identify to the proper authorities, and for these people you know who you are you are not going to hide from this, there will come a point where you will be identified and brought to justice. I ask that you help us bring yourself in so we can close this incident and it will be dealt with appropriately," he stated.

If you have any information about the incident you are asked to contact GPD or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357) immediately.
