61-year-old charged for raping differently abled child

A 61-year-old man was on Monday remanded to prison after he was charged for engaging in sexual activity with a differently abled child without her consent in January.
Octavius Williams stood before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Monday.
The prosecution’s case stated that the man engaged in sexual activity with the 13-year-old girl on January 31, 2019, at the child’s East Ruimveldt, Georgetown residence. According to the prosecution’s case, the 61-year-old man was seen entering the child’s bedroom by a neighbour. After hearing a strange sound, the neighbour told the girl’s father, who upon entering the child’s bedroom, saw the elderly man pulling up his trousers.
As such, a report was made to the East Ruimveldt Police Station and the child was taken for a medical examination. Williams was subsequently charged.
The case will continue on February 6, 2019.
