Father remanded for sexual activity with 7-year-old daughter

A 40-year-old labourer was on Friday remanded to prison for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with his seven-year-old daughter. The man was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he appeared at West Coast Demerara court.
It is alleged that between December 1 and 31, 2020, he engaged in sexual activity with a child family member. The case continues on January 21.
Reports are that the man sexually molested his daughter and 10-year-old son. Reports are that the children live with the accused and their mother, who is said to be suffering from a mental illness. They reside in a shack at a settlement along the Demerara River.
It was reported that whenever the man consumes alcohol, he would sexually molest the children.
According to information, the children recently confided in a relative that their father was violating them and a report was made to the Childcare and Protection Agency. An investigation was launched immediately and officials went to the children’s place of abode.
The girl and her brother were taken into special care as the Police were called in to do investigations. It was reported that they were also taken for medical examinations which confirmed that they had been sexually molested. Their father was arrested and charged.
