Police swooped down on a Victoria East Coast Demerara house occupied by a group of bisexual men and a young woman and rescued a 14-year old boy who was being held against his will. The boy was reported missing from his Sophia home six weeks ago.
One of the occupants of the home has been detained after he admitted that he had sexual relations with the boy.
Police said that the man could face abduction and buggery charges and could appear in court as early as tomorrow.
Kaieteur News understands that the child, who had runaway from his Sophia home last month, was loitering by the Stabroek Market area when a man who shared his home with three other bisexual males, spotted him.
The man allegedly offered the boy refuge at his home and eventually managed to seduce him into having sex.
Villagers had observed the strange boy at the home but disregarded his presence since they thought that he was a relative or a willing occupant of the house.
However, word got out that the child was being held against his will and may have been sexually abused by the men in the house.
The mother of the child contacted villagers after learning of her son’s whereabouts.
Police had previously visited the house but could find no evidence that the teen was there.
The neighbours kept a close watch on the house since the child was reportedly kept hidden from public view and since they could not ascertain if he was still there.
On spotting the teen yesterday, they contacted the police who immediately swooped down on the property.
The suspect initially told the police that the teenager was his niece’s boyfriend. This niece happened to be the lone female occupant of the house.
And the woman, in a desperate attempt to save the suspect from being arrested, sought to confirm the man’s statement to the police.
However, realizing that they both were being arrested, they changed their story and the man admitted that he was responsible for the teenaged boy being at his house.
A large crowd watched as the suspect and the woman were taken into custody and the teen whisked away to the Cove and John Police Station.
