Facebook rape case prompts warning from law officers

The Judicial Investigating Organization is warning the public to be cautious with social networks.

The warning came after the arrest of a man who is accused of rape of a woman he met on Facebook.

The agency said that unknown persons can generate
confidence via the social networks.

In the current case a woman arranged to met a Facebook contact near her home in San Luis de Santo Domingo de Heredia. They had been communicating for a month. When they did meet in December, the woman said the man pulled a knife and forced himself on her.

The man was detained Wednesday morning near his home.
