    A 36-year-old La Brea man has been charged with indecent assault, showing pornographic images to a minor, and possession of marijuana.

    He was granted $175,000 bail by Point Fortin Senior Magistrate Alicia Chankar yesterday and ordered to stay 100 metres away from the 16-year-old victim.

    He is expected to reappear on August 17th.

    The victim and a relative made a report to the Point Fortin Municipal Police Station, alleging that the man had touched her and showed her pornographic videos from his phone in April 2021.

    A search warrant was executed, during which time police seized a flash drive, a micro SD card and a sim card, along with 110 grams of marijuana.
