She said Mathias who reside in the same vicinity approached the victim and asked her to buy bread for him.
However, when the victim brought the bread accused directed her to take it to his room.
Inspector Anaman said immediately the victim entered Mathias’s room, he followed her, dragged her on the floor and had sex with the victim.
