… Angoy’s Avenue buggery, carnal knowledge case
The seven-year-old child that was sexually abused by her stepfather with assistance from her mother has been removed from the home and placed in a Children’s home.
This is the latest information coming from the Probation and Social Service Department of the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security.
The department intervened after it was reported that the child was sexually violated in every way possible by her stepfather who is a drug addict.
It was also revealed that when the child complained to her mother, she was beaten with a piece of wood with a nail on the end.
The 22-year-old stepfather of Angoy’s Avenue and formerly of Pomeroon, was charged with three counts of violating his stepdaughter.
He is charged with having Carnal Knowledge of the seven- yr- old girl between Tuesday December 1 and Thursday December 31, 2009 at Angoy’s Avenue. He is also charged with sodomising the girl between the same dates and at the same place.
The final charge read that on Thursday April 22, 2010 at Angoy’s Avenue he again had carnal knowledge with the girl.
He was not required to plead when he appeared before Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo, and was remanded to prison until May 24.
The girl lived at the home with her mother, three other siblings and another family. It was told that the man would usually send the child to purchase marijuana which he and her mother would smoke.
After the smoke he would then take advantage of the child.
When the girl told her mother what had happened she was given a sound beating with a piece of wood with a nail on the end.
Relatives noticed that the girl was not acting her usual self and questioned the girl who confided in them. The matter was reported and the man was arrested and charged.
It is understood that although the mother is wanted by the police for some earlier misdemeanor including possession of ammunition, she was not arrested because she has a three-week-old baby.
The relevant authorities are still contemplating their next move.
