The man held in connection with sexual abuse claims at the St Dominic’s Children’s Home more than 25 years ago will be charged by investigators as they have been given the all clear to do so by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The 51-year-old man is set to be hit with a slew of charges ranging from serious indecency to buggery and sexual assault.
According to reports a team of officers went to the St Ann’s Hospital and held the man on Friday.
He has been in custody at the Besson Street Police Station since then.
So far three witnesses have positively identified the man as their alleged abuser.
The man, who was a staff member at the St Dominic’s Home when the alleged abuse occurred, was interviewed by police on Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the presence of his sister.
He told officers he too was a victim of sexual abuse at the home.
