A 19-year-old unemployed man, who resides in Maloney Gardens, was arrested by officers of the Port-of-Spain Child Protection Unit (CPU) for allegedly sexually assaulting his 14-year-old aunt. The man is expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate, today charged with one count of sexual penetration of a child.

According to police reports, he was arrested on September 26th, following a report made by a 14-year-old girl that while she was at home sleeping on the couch, she was awakened by a man who was inserting his penis into her vagina.

When the victim arrived at the Besson Street Police Station, she told police that he stopped after she raised an alarm. Cpl (Ag) McKain, of the Port-of-Spain CPU, took lead of the investigation which led to the suspect’s arrest later that day.
