Scandal at Bogota restaurant

November 12, 2013

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Colombian police say they are investigating the alleged rape of a 20-year-old woman in the parking lot of a famed Bogota restaurant that became the talk of online social networks after the restaurant’s owner raised doubts about whether a crime was committed and commented on the woman’s attire.

Police say they are investigating a complaint by the woman’s family that she was raped early on Nov. 3 in the parking lot of Andres Carne de Res.

Owner Andres Jaramillo drew intense criticism online after a radio interview Tuesday in which he questioned whether the woman was raped and for commenting that she was wearing a mini-skirt.

Jaramillo said video cameras and the testimony of waiters suggested the sex was instead consensual.

Police say no arrests have been made.
