A 43-year-old man is expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today charged with a series of sexual offences against two female minors.
The suspect, who lives in Diego Martin, was charged with 13 counts of sexual penetration of a minor; four counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child; two counts of grooming a minor; and one count of possession of child pornography.
He was charged by WPC Joseph of the Western Division Child Protection Unit (CPU) last Friday.
The girls’ mother made a report to police that a man known to them had allegedly sexually assaulted the girls over a period of time.
Investigations revealed that the girls, an 11-year-old and 13-year-old, were spending time at their father’s house in Diego Martin when the attacks occurred.
The girls’ father allowed a friend, an unemployed man who was separated from his wife, to stay at his residence.
The man built a relationship with the two girls and waited at nights when the father left to have sexual intercourse with them. Sometime after the alleged incidents, the girls reported the matter to their mother who alerted the CPU.
