Teen charged for rape of six-year-old

By NALINEE SEELAL Friday, July 5 2013

A TEENAGED schoolboy from east Trinidad who was arrested on Wednesday has been formally charged with four counts of raping a six-year-old girl. The boy, 14, was expected to appear in court yesterday to answer the charges.

The teen was detained two days after the child was medically examined by a doctor at the Sangre Grande District Hospital. According to reports, last week Wednesday the girl told her mother that she was in pain. When the mother checked the child, she discovered that the girl was bleeding.

The child then told her mother what had happened and the woman took the child to the Matura Police Station and made a report to WPC William James.

On Tuesday the child was medically examined and hours later a team of police officers went to the suspect’s home in Toco where they detained him. A statement was recorded late Wednesday night and this led to the suspect being charged with four counts of rape.

The rapes allegedly occurred between October last year and earlier this month. The child and her mother are expected to undergo counselling by the Victim Support Unit of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

Yesterday, senior police officers told Newsday that cases of incest and rape continue to be reported especially in the Toco and Matura areas and are advising parents to be careful with their children especially over the school vacation.
