Man charged for sex act around 5-year-old – Trinidad & Tobago
A 40-year old man in Trinidad who allegedly engaged in a sex act in the presence of a 5-year-old girl, appeared before the court.
The man recently faced Siparia magistrate Aden Stroude. He was granted $150,000 bail and the matter adjourned to March 28.
A post to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) social media page stated that on July 15 2021, the girl was at her home when someone known to her allegedly engaged in a sexual activity in her presence.
Constable Mc Gregor of the Southern Division Child Protection Unit investigated and this resulted in the arrest and charge of a 40-year-old man on February 26.
Investigations were supervised by acting Supt Claire Guy-Alleyne, acting ASP Roberts, Insp Knutt, acting Sgt Taylor and acting Cpl Fairley.
Last week a twelve year old girl was reportedly abducted and raped in Jamaica.
The child, who is a grade six student, and her brother were on their way home from school yesterday when a man offered them a ride.
“When they reached their destination, he told (name withheld) to come out the car and drove off with her,” one relative told The Gleaner.
The child was reportedly released late yesterday in a community near her home.
She was taken to a hospital for treatment, The Gleaner understands.
“It’s sad, but God is good. The last thing we wanted to hear was that they found her dead. I just hope she will be able to take her upcoming PEP exams,” the relative said.
