– claims suspect raped her 11-year-old daughter
A mother is pleading with police officials to investigate why ranks at a city police station released her brother, after he was held for allegedly raping her 11-year-old daughter.
The man, who is no stranger to the law, was arrested last Thursday after the niece told police that he had sexually assaulted her.
A medical examination confirmed that the schoolgirl was sexually active.
Despite this evidence, Kaieteur News has confirmed that the suspect was subsequently released after being transferred to another police station.
A police source who spoke to Kaieteur News was unable to say why the man was released.
The mother told Kaieteur News that after his release, her brother, who is in his twenties, came by her home and threatened to kill her. He has since disappeared.
Police confirmed that they have been unable to locate the suspect.
“I want them to find him and charge him,” the mother told Kaieteur News yesterday. “I want them to question him as to why he ran away.”
The woman explained that the brother, who was frequently in trouble with the police, had lived at the back of her home.
According to reports, the girl alleged that she was going to use an outdoor bathroom near her uncle’s home when the man attacked and raped her.
The incident allegedly occurred about two weeks ago, but the girl told her mother that she did not immediately inform anyone because the man had threatened to kill her.
However, the victim’s ordeal came to light last week, when three schoolboys were accused of sexually assaulting her. The incident allegedly occurred at the school the girl attends.
Police said that the boys, who are reportedly younger than the alleged victim, were questioned and released.
After the incident, the schoolgirl underwent the medical examination, which showed that she was sexually active. According to the mother, a doctor stated that the examination indicated that someone older was involved.
After being questioned by a teacher, the girl finally identified her uncle as the culprit.
He was arrested, taken to a city police station, and then subsequently transferred to another station, where a rank had him released.
The victim’s mother said that he then turned up at her home, packed his belongings and left, but not before hurling threats at the family.
