2 men charged with buggery after allegedly assaulting girl, 12, in Jamaica


A 20-year-old farmer and an 18-year-old man have been charged with buggery and failure to report a child in need of care and protection after a child was reportedly taken into a banana field and assaulted.

Charged are Anthony Grant otherwise called ‘Murderer’ and Marlon Reid both of Plantation Heights, St James.

According to the police, two girls – age 12 – were walking along the Plantation Heights main road when Grant and Reid drove up on a motorcycle and started a conversation with them.

It is alleged that during the conversation, Grant pulled one of the girls into a nearby banana field while Reid restrained the other on the roadway.

Grant allegedly undressed the girl and sexually assaulted her. The child was then reportedly told that she would be shot if she told anyone what had happened.

A report was made to the police and both men were arrested during an operation on Friday, March 17. Grant was charged after he was pointed out during an identification parade on Tuesday, March 21 and Reid on Thursday, March 23.

They are slated to appear in the St James Parish Court on Wednesday, April 5, to answer to the charges laid against them.

  1. I know there are many men in Jamaica who go by the name “Killa” but people really nickname this young man “Murderer”.

    Just imagine some one saying that they are hanging out with Murderer. Just imagine hearing that Murderer is outside waiting for you.

    Jamaica is a place where badness is the culture.
