NASSAU, BAHAMAS — A Royal Bahamas Defence Force officer was among three men charged in magistrates court today with the rape of two teenage girls.

Yorick Brice Jr, 26, and his 19-year-old brother Maximus Brice, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt, along with a 17-year-old juvenile.

However, they were later granted $5,000 bail in the Supreme Court.

The juvenile was remanded to the Simpson Penn Center for Boys.
