National Security Minister Peter Bunting says the rape incident in Irwin, St. James presents an opportunity for all Jamaicans to collectively reject criminality in all its forms.
Speaking at the gathering at the Sam Sharpe Square in Montego Bay this morning, he again urged residents not to harbour criminals in their homes and communities.
Bunting also sought to assure that those responsible for what he described as a horrible incident will be punished.
In the meantime, the police said charges are expected to be laid against the main suspect held in connection with the rape of five females, including an eight-year-old, in St James.
A statement from the Constabulary Communication Network said the police have also identified another man they believe can assist them significantly with their investigations.
They say they have contacted his family and are negotiating with them to bring him in accompanied by his attorney.
The statement confirms that the main suspect will be interviewed today.
The five females from Irwin Point were reportedly tied up and raped at gun point at approximately 10.30 on Monday night.
The family's ordeal reportedly lasted for more than two hours.
