Dangriga Police Make Progress in Disturbing Case Involving Disabled Minor

Tonight we can report that there is some progress in the investigation of an allegation of a disturbing crime in Dangriga. Police have been encountering difficulties in getting a formal complaint from a minor who was allegedly sexually violated by her stepfather on March thirty-first at her home. The minor has cerebral palsy, and cannot speak or walk, but she reportedly managed to communicate to her mother that she was touched inappropriately by her stepfather when her caretaker left the house. A subsequent medical examination confirmed that her hymen was torn. Because of the cerebral palsy and its effects on the minor, Police have had to enlist the aid of the Human Services Department to determine a way forward. That’s been done, and we’re told that either today or Saturday, investigators will be recording a video-statement from the alleged victim. As to the man accused of the terrible crime…he’d been ordered out of the home by the Court, who granted a protection order, but we’re told that Police are currently very interested in determining his whereabouts. We’ll have more on this story next week.
