An Infant is Sexually Assaulted by a Relative in Belmopan

Joseph Myvett

A four-year-old girl was reportedly raped by a member of her own family while in the care of her aunt in Belmopan.  While the infant could not provide police with information on when the incident happened, she did confess to them that a relative made sexual contact with her.  On November fifth, the child, accompanied by her aunt, visited the police station to make a report.

 

ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“On Monday, sometime after 4:30 p.m., a twenty-three-year-old Honduran female accompanied by her four-year-old niece visited the police station where the four-year-old reported that on a date she cannot remember, whilst at her family home she was or she had some uncomfortable contact with a family member.  Police have since detained that person who is pending charges.”

Police have since arrested and charged a forty-four-year-old Guatemalan national for the crime of rape of a child.
