Raping a 15-year-old girl at the East La Penitence Police Station

The incident reportedly occurred about two weeks ago.

Kaieteur News understands that the teen was detained last month after she was found wandering in the city.

It is alleged that the policemen took the girl out of the lockups and carried her to an Eve Leary location where he sexually assaulted her.

The matter was reported to senior officials and the rank was taken into custody.

Meanwhile, police are hunting for a minibus conductor who allegedly drugged and raped a 13-year-old schoolgirl on Friday.

According to reports, the teen was going to South Ruimveldt to visit the conductor's sister when the suspect followed her.

The teen alleged that he gave her a beverage and that she fell asleep after drinking it.

She claimed she eventually awoke to find that her underwear had been removed and that she was bleeding from her privates.

The matter was reported to the police who have been unable to locate the suspect.
