Two men charged for sex acts to girls, 5, 13 and 15

Two men will appear before a San Fernando Magistrate today charged with sexual assault to three female minors.

The men, ages 25 and 37, of Gasparillo and Cocoyea respectively, were charged in two separate incidents yesterday by officers of the Southern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU).

In the first case, PC Rohan conducted an investigation into a report surrounding the alleged sexual abuse to a 15-year-old girl.

According to the girl, during the month of April 2019, a man known to her took her to a relative’s house in Gasparillo where he allegedly had sexual intercourse with her.
The girl told police that the acts occurred on three occasions.

PC Rohan further conducted enquiries during which he discovered that the suspect also allegedly sexually assaulted his five-year-old daughter.

The accused was arrested and charged with three counts of sexual penetration of a minor and one count of sexual touching of a minor.
In the second case, WPC Maison-Marshall launched an investigation into a report made by a 13-year-old girl that while at her aunt’s home in May this year, she was awoken by a man touching her stomach.

The girl reportedly told the investigator that the man proceeded to touch her breasts and vagina.

The investigation resulted in the arrest of the 37-year-old suspect who was subsequently charged with one count of sexual touching of a minor.
Both men will answer to the charges today, Monday 30th November, 2020, before a San Fernando Magistrate.
