A 20-year-old man has been charged with three counts of sexual penetration of a child. He will appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today.
The man was arrested on Monday 2nd November, and subsequently charged on Tuesday 3rd November, 2020, by Cpl (Ag.) Davis-Guerra of the Western Division Child Protection Unit (CPU).
The charges stem from a tip received by ChildLine Trinidad and Tobago that a man had been sexually assaulting a girl in West Trinidad.
The information was passed onto the CPU where an investigation was immediately launched.
Cpl (Ag.) Davis-Guerra later discovered that a 13-year-old girl was subjected to a series of sexual assaults during May and July of this year.
During the investigation, it was revealed by the victim that while she was at home, the suspect would come over where he sexually assaulted her.
The alleged offender of Petit Valley will answer to three counts of sexual penetration of a minor when he appears before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today, Wednesday 4th November, 2020.
The investigation was spearheaded by W/Supt (Ag) Natasha George, ASP (Ag) Sookdeo and Sgt Aroon.
