Man charged with sexual assault, attempted suffocation of a child


    A 44-year old man has been charged with seven counts of sexual penetration of a child and one count of attempted suffocation.

    According to the TTPS, the 10-year-old girl confided in her aunt and grandmother that she was being repeatedly raped.

    An investigation by the North Eastern Division Child Protection Unit subsequently revealed that during the period March 2019 and September 9th 2020, the girl was sexually assaulted on numerous occasions.

    During one encounter he attempted to suffocate her using a pillow.

    The unemployed man was arrested September 14th, and is due to appear virtually at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ court today.
