Investigations are underway into three reports of sexual assault, including one of intercourse with a 10-year-old girl

24

The Police are reportedly investigating two instances of indecent assault involving adult females and a case of unlawful sexual intercourse with a 10-year-old child.

According to reports, a 38-year-old woman claims she was indecently assaulted by a man with whom she is familiar, on June 14, at the Halcyon Cove.

Officers are now probing the alleged incident and are said to have received information that is pertinent to their inquiries.

Further reports say that a 28-year-old woman alleges she was indecently assaulted by a man with whom she is not familiar, and that the offence occurred at the Clare Hall Triangle, at 10:40 a.m. on Sunday, June 19.

The Police conducted inquiries and a man reportedly is in custody, assisting with investigations into the alleged offence.

Meanwhile, a source says that a father took his 10-year-old daughter to the All Saints Police Station, where he filed a report that she was sexually molested by a known male.

In order not to compromise the privacy of the child, no further information can be made public at this stage. However, officers are conducting investigations with the hope of bringing the perpetrator to justice.

If convicted, the man could be sentenced to life imprisonment for this perverse act against a young child.

Sexual acts against children appear to be on the increase, forcing the Cabinet into a decision to adopt stricter measures to deal with such cases, especially those involving bus operators who prey on young girls.

This decision follows the conviction of Addison Browne, the brother of a Cabinet Member, who was found guilty of raping a 13-year-old girl three years ago. A bus driver by profession, Browne will be sentenced in mid-July.

Meanwhile, Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party, notes that the sexual abuse of young children often haunts and impacts them negatively for the rest of their lives.

A lot more needs to be done to protect children from sexual predators, Lovell says, while making specific reference to this recent conviction.

He says that Cabinet’s threat to go after bus operators – who, it is being alleged, are the main culprits – is not sufficient.

Further, Lovell says the Prime Minister should apologize – on behalf of his brother – for the heinous act committed against a young girl.

  1. Politicians says things to stay relevant why should the prime minister or any other person apologize for grown relatives for their actions come on make it make sense now. How about you apologize to the country for your failures of leading that party and step down and give someone else a chance to make changes in the country

    • THE PM SHOULD NOT APOLOGISE FOR RELATIVES BUT AT LEAST THE RAPIST IS A RELATIVE…..BUT UPP MUST APOLOGISE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ONE OF THEIR SUPPORTER? WHAT MADNESS…………

  6. Lovely’s comments makes him look ignorant. And such a comment coming from a senior politician strongly suggest that he’s looking for political mileage.

  7. Who owns the Stanford property at Barnicle point . I see big fete announcement. Local contractors not getting paid except the friends of the politicians. The rest of the contractors are going bankrupt by this government.

  8. What’s sad is some of these politicians and voices on the radio (wannabe politicians) have also messed around with underaged girls, not saying they raped these girls but they’ve had sexual relations.

  9. All these news portals need to immediately stop using phrases such as “intercourse with a ten year old”. There is no such thing. It is called rape. A CHILD CANNOT CONSENT TO SEX. These type of headlines and phrases would never be used in America or the UK but here we continue to put the ball in the court of underage VICTIMS. News portals need to stop it and use appropriate language, it makes the whole country look ignorant. There is no such thing as ‘underage intercourse’. Why don’t we start there 🙄

  11. A-hole just incase you did not know..If you have an adult child and they commit a crime of any sort-is it your duty to apologise on their behalf? Is that what you’re really saying??Look at how the hunger for power can allow people to make clowns of themselves.the sad part is you will never see the office of government in this nation again.You’re a political failure and now you’re expressing yourself as a dunce. How much did you pay for your degree because you’re clearly an idiot..

  12. U GUYS ARE JUST EMBARASSED……LOVEL HAVE ALL RIGHT TO SAY WHAT HE SAID, BECAUSE GASTON STARTED IT, SAYING THAT HIS SUPPORTERS SHOULD MASH UP PEOPLE NAME……HE IS YOUR BROTHER, A KNOWN RAPIST OF A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL….

    KARMA IS REAL. HOPE U GASTON WILL BE IN POWER FOREVER…..SINCE YOU WILL BE VOTING FOR EVERY ANTIGUAN AND BARBUDAN IN THIS COUNTRY.

    YOU ARE THE BIGGEST DUNCE IN DIS COUNTRY, U HAVE WRECKED OUR GOOD LAND. U HAVE DESTROYED ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA.
    WORST PRIME MINISTER EVER, EVEN YOUR SUPPORTERS SAY SO.
