GPD looking into use of gunfire during chase of rape suspect

Posted: May 11, 2018 5:25 PM Updated:

An internal affairs investigation is ongoing after police opened fire during a chase for a suspect connected to a rape and robbery in Talofofo earlier this month.

Chief of Police JI Cruz confirmed, "We do have a use of force policy and that is primarily the policy that we use - was the force that was applied by the officers at the time occurred, was it applied properly? So that amongst other policies we are taking a look at to ensure that our officers were in accordance with our rules."

As reported, Benjamin Jesse Pablo allegedly held a knife to two women at Ipan Beach Park, raped one of the females, and robbed them of their car keys.

He was found a week later driving the stolen car and led police on a brief chase through Talofofo.

The chase ended when Pablo reversed into the police car.

He is scheduled to appear back in court on May 18.
