A 23-year-old Jamaican man has been charged with one count of sexual penetration of 14-year-old girl.
The labourer, who lives in Tunapuna, was arrested at his home on Saturday, after police officers responded to a report that a man was seen ushering a girl into his apartment.
The man denied having the girl at his home, however the child was found hiding in bedroom cupboard.
She later allegedly told officers that the suspect sexually assaulted her while at the apartment.
According to the TTPS, the suspect began talking to the teenager via social media before she met him at his apartment.
He is due to appear virtually at the Arima Magistrate’s Court today.
