Two men are expected to appear before Siparia and Scarborough Magistrates today (Wednesday) to answer to charges of sexual assault against minors, according to a statement from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).
In the first incident, a 77-year-old suspect was held by officers of the South Western Division Child Protection Unit (CPU) on one count of sexual touching of a child and one count of indecent assault.
The arrest followed an investigation led by W/Cpl (Ag.) Renn-Lashley of the South Western CPU into a report made by a female minor on May 3.
The pensioner is expected to appear before a Siparia Magistrate today to answer to these charges.
In the second incident, Tobago CPU officers conducted an enquiry into a report made by a female minor on April 30, that she was sexually assaulted by a man.
During the enquiry, lead investigator, W/Cpl (Ag.) Hamilton of the Tobago CPU, unearthed that the victim was subjected to these assaults since the age of eight.
Tobago CPU officers subsequently arrested a 23-year-old male in connection with this report.
He is expected to face a Scarborough Magistrate today to answer to four counts of sexual penetration of a child.
These two investigations were strengthened by W/Supt. (Ag) George, ASP Nowbutt, ASP (Ag) Sookdeo and supervised by Insp. Roberts, and Sgt Miller respectively.
