36-year-old charged for raping 9-year-old girl

A 36-year-old man was on Monday released on $250,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on a rape charge.
Mario Heywood appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where the charge was read to him. It is alleged that between October 1 and November 20, 2018, he raped a nine-year-old girl. The court heard that the child was left in his care when he committed the act.
The child reportedly told her mother what had transpired and the matter was reported to the police. The suspect was recently arrested and charged for the offence. The case will continue on March 7, 2019.
