Man charged for beating and sexually assaulting a minor

51-year-old Gasparillo man will today appear before a San Fernando Magistrate charged with a series of offences involving a 13 year old boy on August 22nd.

A TTPS report indicates that the suspect was charged by WPC Romilly of the Southern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU) on November 26th with two counts of sexual penetration, one count of sexual touching, and one count of assault by beating.

According to further reports by the TTPS, charges arose out of an incident which allegedly occurred on August 22nd during which a 13-year-old boy told police that while riding his bike along Bedeau Street, Gasparillo, a man, whom he knows only by face, called out to him and later accompanied him to an abandoned house at the corner of Dalloo Road and Warden Road Gasparillo where the accused physically attacked him.

Following the attack, the boy told police that the man allegedly held him down and performed several sexual acts on him.

A report was subsequently made to the CPU and an investigation led to the arrest and charges being laid against the man.

The suspect will answer to all charges when the matter comes up for hearing before a San Fernando Magistrate today, Friday 27th November, 2020.

The investigation was spearheaded by W/Supt (Ag.) Natasha George and ASP (Ag) Sookdeo and supervised by W/Insp (Ag.) Francis.
