    Two men have been charged with the sexual assault of three female minors.

    One is charged with the sexual abuse of a 15-year-old girl – on three occassions in April 2019, the man allegedly took the victim to a relative’s house where he had sexual intercourse with her.

    The 25-year-old suspect is also alleged to have sexually assaulted his five-year-old daughter.

    He is charged with three counts of sexual penetration of a minor and one count of sexual touching of a minor.

    In the second case, a 13-year-old girl told police that while at her aunt’s home in May this year, she was awoken by a man touching her stomach, breasts and private area.

    The investigation resulted in the arrest of the 37-year-old suspect who has been charged with one count of sexual touching of a minor.

    Both men will appear before a San Fernando Magistrate today.
