Man held for assault of boy 12, girl, 14

By NALINEE SEELAL Friday, December 20 2013

A 48-year-old Laventille man is expected to be charged with two counts of assault under the Children’s Act after he allegedly attempted to strangle a four-year-old boy and his 14-year-old sister.

Police reported that at about 8.30 pm, on Wednesday, the man was at a house at Boxhill Trace, Laventille, where he had an argument with a woman, the mother of the two children. It is reported the man lived in New York for several years.

Police said he allegedly grabbed the boy and began choking him and when the boy’s mother attempted to rescue him, she was assaulted. The man reportedly pulled at the teenage girl. He also destroyed the woman’s cellular phone.

A report was made to the Port-of-Spain Divisional Task Force and a party of officers, led by Sgt Ramsook and WPC Williams responded and the boy and his sister were taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.

The boy was treated and warded and his sister was allowed to go home. The man was taken into custody and was expected to be charged late yesterday.

The woman yesterday revealed neighbours had to get involved to pull the suspect away from the children.

“He was just getting more violent and violent and then when our neighbours came to call the police, he was pulling up the baby (boy). He was holding him up to throw him on the chair and we came in the same time, and stopped it,” the woman said.
