Man banned from village after sexual advances to daughter
A 45-year-old father of five was reportedly chased out of the Community of Mashabo, an Ameridian settlement situated on the western half of the Essequibo Coast, after he made sexual advances to his 14-year-old daugther.
The 14-year-old is a student of the Mashabo Primary School.
The incident, which shocked the community, occurred some time last week. Captain of Mashabo, Joseph, said that charges were not laid against the man because his wife and daughter did not supply police with the correct information.
“They distorted the truth and that was one of the barriers that prevented the police from charging him.”
According to reports, the incident occurred during the night. The father of five was said to be under the influence of alcohol when he attempted to have sex with his daughter.
The 14-year-old raised an alarm and her mother rushed to her rescue. News of the incident filtered to close members of the community who subsequently informed the Captain.
Added reports have also indicate the man had also threatened to maim his wife.
Residents have said the recent incident was not the first. Joseph said the man has since admitted to making inappropriate sexual advances to his daughter and has blamed his erratic behavior on being an alcoholic.
