Bartica man accused of rape on $150,000 bail

Randy Peters of Carabese Hill, Bartica, was released on $150,000 bail by the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
The 31-year-old salesman appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
It is alleged that between January 1 to January 31, 2019, he engaged in sexual penetration with a child under the age of 16.
Reports revealed that family members of the 13-year-old became aware of the incident after she was questioned by a relative who became suspicious.
The teen then related to her parents what had transpired between herself and Peters and a report was made to the Bartica Police Station.
The accused will make his next court appearance at the Bartica Magistrate’s Court on February 21, 2019.
