Suspected child abuser still in custody

Wednesday, January 20 2016

THE Childrenís Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (CATT) says there is an acute and disturbing problem of child cruelty in this country as it expressed horror over reports of the sexual assault of a 13-month-old baby girl in Rio Claro. The Authority disclosed that its emergency response team was yesterday called out to rescue two other children who were sexually abused. The children are now in the care of the Authority and are receiving the necessary support.

The story of the sexual assault was published in Newsday yesterday.

Two men are in custody, including the boyfriend of the babyís mother. Police say they are awaiting instructions from their seniors on how to proceed with the matter. The Authority said it was currently working with the Child Protection Unit of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service to provide support services to the baby and her family. The Authority said it was treating the matter with the sensitivity and confidentiality it deserves.

According to reports, at about 8.50 am on Sunday last, the babyís 42-year-old grandmother was giving her a bath at their home in east Trinidad when she observed that the childís vagina was reddish and swollen, and the child became irritable when she continued to wash her. The grandmother made a report to police who later detained two men including the boyfriend of the babyís mother. Both men remain in custody as investigations continue.
