The prosecution yesterday closed its case against a bartender accused of the rape of a woman at his home.
Blenrick Miller is accused of the sexual assault of an expatriate teacher at his home in Yamacraw in October 2016.
Miller has denied the charge at his trial before Justice Renae McKay.
The woman, who testified during video link, said that Miller grabbed her and performed various sex acts on her without her consent when they went on a date.
During a confrontation held between the pair at the Central Detective Unit in December 2016, Miller maintained that the woman consented to the acts.
Her roommate said that she was withdrawn when she returned from the outing.
The roommate said she later saw that the alleged victim had texted her “help” at 11:36 p.m. on October 14.
A week later, the witness said her roommate finally told her about the date and she suggested that she report the matter to police.
Wayne Munroe, QC, and Jomo Campbell represent Miller. Joel Seymour is prosecuting.
