    A 43-year-old man is scheduled to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today charged with a series of sexual offences against two underaged sisters.

    The suspect is facing: 13 counts of sexual penetration of a minor; four counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child; two counts of grooming a minor; and one count of possession of child pornography.

    The attacks occurred while the girls, ages 11 and 13, were spending time at their father’s house

    The girls’ father was allowing a friend to stay at his residence and the man allegedly built a relationship with the two girls.

    He then waited at nights when the father left to have sexual intercourse with them.

    Sometime later, the girls reported the matter to their mother who alerted the Child Protection Unit.
