in custody at Leonora Police Station
A 45-year-old man was late last night arrested for allegedly being caught in a compromising position with a nine-year-old girl when police ranks swooped down at his house after receiving a tip-off.
Reports are that the man, who hails from Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara (WCD) was seen by neighbours inviting the child into his home around 16:30 hrs yesterday (Wednesday) and the young girl was not seen again.
Concerned neighbours who assumed that something was amiss decided to contact law enforcement officials at the Leonora Police Station around 21:00hrs and shortly after ranks arrived at the man’s home where the child was still present.
They subsequently took the man into police custody and the young girl was taken to the hospital to have a medical examination conducted.
Assistant Commissioner James, who presently has responsibility for “D” Division has confirmed to INews that the man is still in the lockups and investigations are ongoing.
