Elephant Man, whose real name is Oneil Bryan, was arrested on rape that includes sexual offense charges in Jamaica.
Jamaican dancehall star Elephant Man was arrested yesterday (January 31st) on sexual offense charges, including grievous sexual assault and rape.
The rapper, whose real name is Oneil Bryan, reportedly sexually assaulted a woman at his St. Andrew home earlier in January. Police detectives put the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse on the case, leading to his arrest. The rapper was questioned in the presence of his attorney and was then slapped with the charges.
He was released from custody earlier today after posting bail set at 400,000 Jamaican dollars, which is roughly $4,637.95 in American coin.
The woman, 31, filed a police report claiming that she was sexually assaulted.
The entertainer is scheduled to appear in court on May 24, 2012 at the Corporate Area Magistrate’s Court for a preliminary hearing. He is being charged with grievous sexual assault and rape, and he will also appear in court for allegedly stealing electricity.
