Stepfather arrested after forced carnal knowledge report
THE stepfather of a five-year-old girl was taken into Police custody earlier this week after a report of attempted forced carnal knowledge at Charity on Essequibo Coast.

The child had been left in the manís care in the home where he lives with her mother but the woman was out on an errand at the time of the incident.

On her return, the mother found her daughter crying and the girl alleged that her stepfather had removed her panty and tried to have forced sexual intercourse with her.

But, according to the victim, she prevented any penetration, fought off her assailant and fled from the house.

The suspect was arrested after his reputed wife reported the complaint to Police and triggered an investigation that was not complete up to press time.
