5 year old girl raped

Tonight there is a disturbing story of a vicious crime committed on a four year old child. The mother, whose identity will not be revealed to protect the child, has reported that the young girl was sexually abused and the suspect is someone the family knows. According to the mother, on Thursday evening the little girl was nowhere to be found when the baby sitter arrived at school to pick her up. It was later revealed that a man had taken the child from school and she was brutally raped. To protect the child’s and the family’s identities, we also omitted the name of the school and News Five’s Andrea Polanco spoke with the emotional and distraught mother off camera.

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“She end up tell me dah how deh gone with my baby. And I get ready and gone dah the school and deh tell me dat how wah man come fi my baby and deh nuh know weh ih mi look like. And I ask deh, I ask the teacha who ker ah. She say ih look like either ih grandpa or ih uncle and I tell ah my baby nuh got no uncle down yah weh ih deal with. I ask ih teacha please tell me something. She say how she think how dah ih uncle or grandpa, lone that ih repeat. I end up gone dah my grandma house gone get my baby and when I gone deh my baby di sit down pahn the steps.”

Andrea Polanco

“How your baby end up at your grandmother’s house?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Because deh say wah man ker ah deh.”

Andrea Polanco

“And your relatives are not familiar with him?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Hmm. Fi be honest I nuh know weh di happen. I nuh know weh di happen but only one name my baby call, one name ova and ova and ih tell everybody dis man name.”

Andrea Polanco

Andrea Polanco

“Is it somebody you’re familiar with?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Yes. Yap.”

Andrea Polanco

“How did he take your daughter our of the school grounds? Isn’t there a policy where you have to sign in at the gate before you pick up a child?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“I know how that how deh end up call. I  end up call my aunty and tell ah my babysitter di run late, suh if ih could please get in contact with my aunty, her sister and she say ih try get in contact with ah but she say ih phone turn off and she neva did get in contact with me. When I reach home my baby, I open up the car door cause my boyfriend come get me and when I check my baby end up di cry and my baby say ‘mommy I wah live with you, mommy I wah live with you’ and I figured something mi wrong. I gone and I check my baby, when I check my baby ih panty bloody-bloody.”

Andrea Polanco

“So you took her to the doctor and the doctor certified that she was indeed raped?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Yes.”

Andrea Polanco

“The tests that the doctor conducted, did it reveal any additional information?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Yes, deh say that how somebody do ah something and ih whole just messed up.”

Andrea Polanco

“She didn’t contract a disease or anything like that, that would be a case?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Well dah dat deh di check pahn right now. Dah dat deh di check pahn. And all I could tell other mothers weh deh kids di go dah school just be careful cause that messed up, that messed up. And my baby only four fuh mek deh do something to she like that, that just wrong, that wrong. I just advice any other mother just know weh deh di do and know who fi trust out yah.”

Andrea Polanco

“How is she coping otherwise, in terms of her emotional state?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“Ih just nuh be ih self. Yuh talk to ah ih keep ih head down. I try talk to ah, all ih ask me ‘mommy I want you stay with me’ just now when I ker dah school fi gone talk to the principal she start cry, ih nuh wah stay deh. Suh weh I wah du bout my baby education now? I nuh know weh I fi do if yuh can’t trust the own school something just wrong and I think Belize, the government need fi put deh foot down and try do something bout all ah deh yah craziness di tek place right now.”

Andrea Polanco

“What would you like to see be done in your case?”

Voice of Mother of Rape Victim

“I nuh wah he get, whosoever do it I nuh wah deh get no two years, three years because God forgive me I nuh know what wah happen. I nuh wah left my baby dis kinda way and if any test come out if anything happen to my baby. I nuh know weh I wah duh, I nuh know weh I wah duh.”

Fitzroy Yearwood

Andrea Polanco

“I know it’s very difficult but you had the opportunity to sit and talk with your baby, as well as in front of the police. Did your child reveal where this incident took place? Where did the man take her?”

Voice of: Mother of Rape Victim

“To be honest my baby nuh di talk a lot, she nuh di talk a lot at all. Ih nuh really, ih talk bout it ih guh eena trance, ih talk bout it ih guh eena trance and I done know ih done mess up my baby.  As a mother I talk to my baby and I deh round my baby suh I know something wrong, something wrong. I nuh know weh happen but I wah deh du something and I nuh wah left that suh and I mean it.”

Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“I can say on behalf of the commissioner we are doing everything in our power to investigate this sick allegation of the heinous crime. We are doing everything in our power. We know who we are looking for and hope to have that person in custody soon. As soon as we have him in custody, I will make sure that you have a photo at least so that we can alert the public of this sexual predator.”

We were reliably informed that the doctors are currently conducting more tests on the child.

    VERY SAD, my heart goes to the the child. Mommy where were you!!!!!! baby sitter you need to be fired!!!!!!!!! Grandma where were u. Very sad that all the adults that poor child looks up too failed her. the saddest thing who was at home when the child was dropped off???? evidently no one has knowledge what man dropped her to grandma house…..

  2. kim sutherland says:

    It’s a shame instead of dem jackass shooting n killing innocent people they need to start kiling wicked ppl like this , thats the only way we should applaud criminals ….when they help get rid of rapist or anybody who take advantage of small kids!!!

  3. BZNinCALI says:

    @Molested, what happened to you was horrible but most men do not molest or rape, my father & grandfather would have given their lives to protect my siblings & I & I expected nothing less from my spouse. This animal should not be mistaken for a man simply because he has a …… Someone in that home or a close associate is a pedophile & every man, woman & child associated with these people need to be talked to, this pervert has probably molested every child who crossed his threshold & they need to come forward. There is no way a total stranger would have known when & where to pick up this child & where to drop her off. How many times has this same pervert picked her up before or babysat. This pisses me off.

    About the gyrating children making these poor souls lose control…Huh? What man with an ounce of decency looks at a baby & becomes sexually aroused? Earlier this year, the court freed a child rapist & he returned to the village where he committed his crime, let me remind everyone, he is among our unsolved murders, none of us would object to this one meeting the same fate.

  4. Rasta says:

    Sad to hear what has happen! number one the school fail big time come on teachers we need to be more careful and parents let teach our children not to go with anyone train them let them know who will pick them up at school everyday. A as a father I just wish and pray this rapist is found and bring him not to justice he doesn’t deserve one nor given a chance she was just a kid and if it was my kid believe me ill kill him my self. I believe that if we abolish human rights in this country people will tighten up.

  5. NoNo says:

    Why can’t they give the name of this sick chancy man who rape that little baby? I personally want them to give his name so the public can be awhere of it and when they see him they could report him or yo, jus kill the …….. but jus killing him is much too easy for punishment, he needs to be tortured for the kind of crime he commited, and if you all dont know how to torture him, bring him to me and by the time i’m done with him, he will regret doing what he did. and he will spend the rest of his sickning live in trance. i have lots of nieces mien, and i can’t imagine hearing one of them been rape, cause i would turn the world upside down if you know what i mean. So sorry to the family and this little baby, i sure hope justice be served ina a form of torture. i hope he goes to jail and be someone’s #***#

  6. Elgin Martinez says:

    These heinous crimes are been committed against the Belizean people on a daily basis and yet GOB refuse to punish these criminals.

  7. Elgin Martinez says:

    Why havn’t this PM invested in a sex Offenders Registry?Build a website and put the picture on the site so the Belizean public knows who they are.

  8. Chance says:

    This story just doesn’t adds up. I think the mother isn’t telling the whole story.

  9. ree says:

    Mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, nieces and yes belizean for justice and everyother please we need to stand up for this one.
    this is just too much…..

  10. MACAL RIVERA says:

    WHERE IS THE FATHER THAT FATHERED THIS CHILD? HE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE PART OF THIS CHILD’S LIFE?

    AND WHERE THE MADA !@#$ IN HUMAN RIGHT? THE BAR ASSOCIATION? AUDREY MATURA? WHERE THE !@#$ ARE YOU PEOPLE, THIS IS WHEN YOU OR VOICES SHOULD BE LOUDER DEFENDING THE RIGHT OF THIS INNOCENT BABY.

    THAT MOTHER !@#$%^ LOW SCUM, ANIMAL SHOULD GET A BULLET IN HIS HEAD. HOPEFULLY ONE OF THOSE GANGS LEADERS SHOULD DO THAT HONOR.
    ANY BODY WHO HURT A CHILD LIKE THIS SHOULD BE HANG BY THE NECK,THE JUDGE, JUROS AND EXECUTORS SHOULD BE THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY.

    !@#$%^& HUMAN RIGHTS!!!! I BEG THAT HIS PICTURES BE MADE PUBLIC AND TO HELL WITH HUMAN RIGHT!!!! HE IS AN ANIMAL NOT A HUMAN, SO HE HAS NO !@#$%^& RIGHTS/

    This situation is so so heart wrenching. It is so important that whosoever reads this that has any authority please get this little girl, her family immediate counseling on how to protect and manage this little angel’s well being in this after math. Her life and her recovery is critical based on how these days in the aftermath of her rape are handled. I’m hoping and praying that trained authority figures to help protect this little girl does exist in Belize and any chance at healing for her can begin. Times like this I wish a real Dexter did exist but what I wish upon this sick ……. is besides the point. I think as important as it is that he gets crucified, it is so much more important that this little girl not get bombarded with questions as she is in trauma. I believe it’s important that she is nurtured and told every waking moment how previous she is and that what happened to her was not her fault. I wish I could just hold her n make her feel comforted. I wish I had the power to do that. This really just breaks my heart.

  12. Dez says:

    http://www.rapevictimadvocates.org/children.asp

    Please support the family being aware that the child should be the number one priority, not avenging her rape but comforting her and reassuring her that she has done nothing wrong and she is not to blame for anything.

  13. LA says:

    so very sad to read this kind of news, very heart broken like dez said wish i could be there to comfort the baby and just be there for. know what is really pissing me off is how big is !@#$%^& belize that mr. socal fitzroy police officer can’t have the rest of worhtless pigs of polce officer can’t locate this also worhtless no good s-o-b. i hope someone out here find his stinking………..t. please someone help this baby.

  16. Lysa says:

    @ Chance, whether the story adds up or not. There is absolutely no reason for an adult to be so worthless. this is a child we are speaking about. think about if it were your child. Why are we always quick to blame a mother. Can you add up how in the world a man can be aroused by a child? add that and see what you get.

    To the mom, I pray that you find peace within you and your child.

  17. BELIZEAN PRIDE says:

    THT PERSON THT DID THIS IS JUST SICK.HOW COULD HE THINK ABOUT DOING SUCH A THING TO A POOR INOSENT GIRL.EXCUSE MY GRAMMAR. THATS JUST THE WAY I WRITE.BUT ANY WAYS THT PERSON SHOULD BE PROSECUTED/EXECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENT.HE SHOULD HAVE HIS @!(&CUT OFF ANS STUCK UP HIS @$$.THT NIKKKA SHOULD BE CAPPED IN THE HEAD.THEY SHOULD EMPTY A HOLE 9MM CARTRAGE ON HIS DUMB @$$….WELL IM SORRY TO TALK SO NAST BUT I JUST FELL THT THIS PERSON HAS T BE KILLED OR HANGED SOME THNG THT WOULD KEEP HIM FROM DOING IT AGAIN…

  18. Paty says:

    these synical people commenting about mother grandmother! Get a life the child was at their best interest! don’t talk if you don’t have anything constructive to say. Clearing from what i read and am sure that many will agree, the ones that should be held accountable for is the administrative support team from the school who allowed this child to be taken by a stranger without even questioning or at least providing the parent or legal guardian with a phone call to inform them of what was happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. CHICAGORILLA says:

    WHENEVER THIS DEMON IS CAUGHT, CUT OFF HIS GENITAL AND FEED IT TO THE CRABS.

  20. just saying says:

    WE ALL FAILED!!!!!!

  21. realistic says:

    like Chance says the story just don’t add up. The police saying that this is not the 1st time that this girl has been carnally known ??? And why would she go public ??? This story needs more investigation.

  22. BR says:

    Everyone is complaining about the mother, grandmother, and babysitter! but what happen to the darn TEACHER, of that Preschool. She needs to be fired! She was very irresponsible for letting the child go with someone who never picks the child up from school! this is a sad case!

  23. Mother says:

    It is sad the approach the mother is taking. How can you joke about the possibility of your child being taken advantage of? It’s true who feels it know – unfortunately it’s not the mother or caretaker who had to endure inhumane pain, it was an innocent baby girl. My eyes are filled with tears each time I think about it. I give birth twice and it’s still hard for me to be intimate at times – it hurts! Why did you turn a blind eye to your motherly instinct?? Trust your feeling mother!! 99.9% of the time your instincts never fail you.

  24. Sad says:

    This is so sad and heart breaking for me. Today is the first day i actually head and read the full detailed of this story. When my sister called me and was telling me about the story i really didn’t want to hear it. After reading this story i cried i can’t believe how heartless this monster is. I believe that he should be stoned to death he need to feel pain death is the easy way out. Mothers need to interact with their child more. my heart goes out to the family and i pray that God keeps that poor baby safe for the rest of her life.

  25. shuran says:

    the child wont lie, let the accused be shot on sight, simple, no need for trial or evidence , the childs word must stand, the cops cant prove $#!% we know that so lets not hold our breath

  26. me says:

    how can this happen to a young child and no one knows who the man is that pick her up or dropped her off?.. it is very obvious that this is just the surface of this story and something is being covered up by that family. how can the mother say she knows the person her baby is blaming for this horrible crime and yet the grandmother cant say who dropped off the poor child? why dont they try to get a picture of the “suspect” and ask the teacher if he was the one who took the child from school? how can all parties involved be so careless with a 4 yr old child? i have a 4 yr old as well, and i can tell u.. heads would be rolling.. in fact i wouldn’t ever dream of being so careless with whom i entrust my child with.. my heart goes out to that poor child who has suffered a great injustice due to negligence.. and i really hope by hearing this story, similar parents open their eyes and realize how dangerous it is out there and are moved to take better care of their children….
