Two men are in police custody after separate allegations of sexual assault on teenage girls.
In the first incident yesterday, the parents of a 13-year-old of Laventille reported that a 63-year-old man known to the family sexually assaulted her.
When officers detained the suspect, he was found to be bleeding – he was taken to hospital while the girl and her parents were taken to the Belmont Police Station for more inquiries.
In the other incident yesterday, officers responded to a report of a suspect being detained by residents of Chase Village.
When they arrived, they found a 27-year-old Jamaican suffering from injuries and were told he was caught having intercourse with a 14-year-old girl.
Both the alleged suspect and victim were taken to hospital where the man continues to be treated under police guard.
