THREE men are in police custody after four Venezuelan women were yesterday rescued from a Diego Martin home painted to look like a police station.
The four were held at a house along Union Road, Four Roads. The two-storey house was painted in what appeared to be police blue and white colours, and had three Star of David police insignia signs on the gate.
The rescue occurred around 11:50am.
Missing persons reports were filed at the St. James Police Station, after two of the women, did not return to where they were staying; after leaving earlier in the day to go in search of apartments to rent in the St. James area.
Acting on intelligence, officers went to the house in Diego Martin, where they rescued a total of four women, who were being held hostage at the residence.
Officers have since arrested three men for kidnapping, robbery and sexually assaulting these women. Several units of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service are now involved in this investigation.
