    A 19-year-old Cunupia man has been ordered to have absolutely no contact with a 16-year-old girl, after appearing in court charged with two counts of sexual penetration of a child.

    The accused was also instructed to stay 200 feet away from the girl as part of his bail conditions set at $75,000 by Magistrate Adrian Darmanie.

    On April 17th, detectives of the Child Protection Unit were alerted by a woman that her 16-year-old daughter had gone to the house of a 19-year-old man in Cunupia.

    Following enquiries, the man was charged.

    He is due to reappear before the court on May 18th.
