3 year old boy sexually abused in San Pedro

On Wednesday, a pre-school in Belize City was attacked by armed robbers. The teacher was held at gunpoint in front of the classroom of four year old children. If that was not enough to shock everyone there is a report coming out of San Pedro Town tonight of a despicable incident. The family of a three and a half year old boy is alleging that the child has been sexually molested at the preschool he attends. The incident allegedly occurred sometime last week and a report was made to the San Pedro Police Station. According to police, the child has been checked by two doctors; a private doctor and another at the San Pedro Polyclinic two. Both reportedly confirm that there are signs of abuse. The grandmother of child visited the Police Station last Thursday and made the report that her grandson had been sexually molested and that she had taken him to a private doctor. There was a follow up visit to the public health facility in San Pedro. The principal of the school called an emergency meeting with the Parent Teachers Association where she discussed the situation in detail on Wednesday night. She told the parents that she was informed by the family members of the situation. The Principal stated that she heard second hand that the abuse had happened on the school compound, but said it is highly unlikely since there are three teachers at any given time and the children are not left unattended. The Ministry of Education told News Five this afternoon that they are aware of the incident and strongly denounce it, but it is now a police matter and they could not comment further. An investigation is now ongoing.

    The FIRST AND HIGHEST RESPONSIBILITY of any school or organization that has the care of children is TO PROTECT THE CHILDREN.

    The principal should be fired immediately for beginning what can only be described as an effort to cover up and deflect a heinous allegation with no facts at all to support the speculation.

    There is a grave accusation, it must be investigated thoroughly to a correct conclusion no matter where the TRUTH leads. To protect against another child being victimized and traumatized the allegation must be presumed true for now, and if the perpetrator is known that person must immediately be separated from access to the school and children. Or does the principal consider it better to risk sacrificing another child to a pervert — for what good purpose?

    The police in Belize have a long, sad, and almost unbroken history of failing to take reasonable steps to protect the most vulnerable victims. Compounding that history, the San Pedro formation is famed for being exceedingly inept. I hope the best CIB can offer takes over this investigation immediately.

    Or let the good parents there organize to take justice into their hands.

    I would have no problem hanging every child rapist, but if the law won’t go that far, at least castrate the male molesters.

    This is very tragic! What a horrible reflection on the nation. I pray the perpetrator will be found, charged, & punished for the life-long trauma & damage inflicted in this little boy.

  3. Rod says:

    What an island of perversion murderers, rapist, pedophiles ,homosexuals, thieves wow no more morals on this island would not want my children to grow up there.

  4. star says:

    I agree 100% with Rod.

  5. islandresident says:

    Yo, Rod..tell me the name of your town, i bet there is no murderers, rapists, pedophiles, homos etc etc…is it called “Fantasy Town”? Wake up buddy…everytown has its share of what you mentioned. The school in question has an excellent track record. All that is being said on the media houses are speculations. Why are we a society that is quick to judge and prosecute based on a news report. I am sadden for the child and want to see justice and if it did happen on school grounds, let the consequences fall where they may

  6. Bob says:

    Hey Rod, could you please send me the address of the utopian city in which you are living and in return I will send you a book on English grammar.

  7. rainbow says:

    @ Rod, exactly how do homosexuals fit in your list? I agree with murderers, rapist, thieves, pedophiles….yes indeed corrupt. From what I know, no homosexual in Belize is committing crimes. Am sure whoever did that to the poor little boy is not a homosexual. It is a sick minded straight ………

  8. Belizean Pride says:

    how low can a human be to do such a thing to a baby child of 3yrs, Jesus please help our nation we are already lost track of self esteem and love for one another, law in our nation is no longer a law so please deal with this case for a angel has been hurt and hopefully the pedophile can live a miserable life from now on. justice is no longer a thing in Belize. Lord please help this child for his emotional, physical and spiritual life to overcome this atrocity done to him, all I can do is hope that someday the scum will pay for double the act he has done.
    Amen.

  9. Marzz says:

    Thanks Bob, ……….Thank you so very much!, but a book might just not be enough for Rod, he may need a whole library!

    P.S. Good luck on getting his Utopian address….he just might not be able to write that down grammatically correct.

  10. Rod says:

    Now the San pedranos come out and speak but for the murder of a person not from the island you were mute so what’s the names and pictures of the murderers they need to be hung from the neck till dead on that topic not one island person posted a comment.

  11. Local says:

    The attidute our elected representatives responsible for crime will say ” its just one child, I have a lot more murders and rapes in my constituency that on the whole island of San Pedro…”. What is UNIBAM saying about crimes like this? That’s the problem with this place. Didn’t this same type of incident happen a year or so involving a little girl, and the perp ended up walking free? When is this madness going to stop? It seems it might just be time for people to start taking the law into their own hands, as public policy, local laws, local law enforcement and most importantly, the GOB has failed them in every way.

  12. MADDYVANDIJKDEREALISTO says:

    The teachers quickly announced that the children were never left alone on the school grounds at any given time.

    This is there defense mode.

    The child was molested by one of the teachers, or by someone at home, or even neighbor/s.

    I hear a lot of talking coming from the grandmother of this child, but where is the mother/father of this child, I bet they have abandon their child like many others In Belize?

    Belize is truly the devils paradise.

  13. WESTERNMERMAID says:

    THIS IS TERRIBLE, HOW CAN A YOUNG BABY BE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED IN SCHOOL???
    MAYBE POLICE NEED TO DO MORE INVESTIGATION, MAYBE ALL THE ABUSE WAS DONE AT HOME BY A WELL KNOWN CLOSE PERSON TO THE CHILD.

    WE NEED TO START TO HANG THESE !@#$%^& THAT ABUSE OUR LITTLE CHILDREN,
    HOW CAN A PERSON DO SUCH THING WITH A BABY???????

  14. Island Mom says:

    I am a mother of 3 teenagers on the island of San Pedro. The task of parenting is very diffcult, given the circumstances surrounding our children. I believe the people of San Pedro need our prayers more than anything. Myself and my husband are always approached on the streets and ask how we manage to have control of our teeenagers. It’s not easy but we need to instill in our children the values of life. Now what happened to the baby here that was molested, I believe should be investigated thoroughly and the perpetrator punished. In the meantime San Pedro need prayers.

  15. Nimbo says:

    WHOEVER DID IT-LET IT PAY FOR THIS!!! UNLESS WE BELIZEANS, MOTHERS AND FATHERS TAKE A STAND AND DEMAND OUR GOVERNMENT TO DO THEIR JOBS- WHICH INCLUDES PROTECTING CITIZENS AGAINST BARBARIC EPISODES LIKE THIS WE WILL ONLY BE FALLING INTO A DEEPER HOLE!

  16. Thinker: says:

    It’s very sad news, and so sad that a child is involved. Just imagine the trauma! It.’s no time for any of you to be fighting about where it happened. Pray that justice be done,and still that will not heal the damage done to this innocent child. These things happen everywhere not only in San Pedro. Let the proper authorities take care. It’s time they do something about this. It can and will continue to happen to our children if they just forget about it!

  17. verymad says:

    @rainbow. The homo that killed the teacher Castillo in Corozal and the homo that killed the other Castillo in Orange Walk. And if we look at the archives just in channel 5 news you will know about more. The San Pedranos will not say nothing bad about the island because most of them have a bussines legal and some ilegal. They see the $$$$$ going. They want people outside to think that nothing bad ever happens. Like my grandmother used to say YOU CANT COVER THE SUN WITH ONE FINGER.

  18. jgal says:

    Hey, Its not about Rod or bob its about an innocent child. people wake up lets get together an try our best to ensure GOB hang these suckers.

  19. Bear says:

    Death to child molesters.

  20. I Belize it says:

    First thing to be determined is whether it actually happened.

    Three year old kids can claim anything and they believe it, or can be led to say it happened and they believe it.

    A misguided police investigation will only make it worse, either perceived as a cover up, innocent people’s lives ruined, or worse.

  21. cutie banner says:

    i believe that the family of this child need to be real and say what actually happened and stop being such liars there lying to themselves and to the most high ! i will not judge others for it is not rightful of me ! i leave that to god everybody will have there day ! whatever we do here we respond for in another world! so to that family don’t believe that the world is yours it could fall upon you any minute !!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Wisdom says:

    The case about this little boy is a puzzled case. I live in San Pedro and I know that the owner of the pre-School is a very respectable lady and has hired very dedicated teachers to work in the pr-school. These teachers are very dedicated and love their jobs . I know about this fact because I myself has been in that pre-school and I have seen the dedication of these teachers. If the child has been sexually molested, it surely could not have happened at the pre-school. First of all it was reported late days after they claimed it happened!!! Teachers are there supervising during school hours and during break time !!!!!!!! A case like this would show physical painful evidence at the moment it happened and the child would have been suffering from pain which would have clearly shown at the moment it happened and such child would have pyhsicaly cried and the teachers would have been shocked and alarmed about this horror!!!! If that would have been the case the teachers would have made an immediate report to the police that same day and the parents be informed !!! but Nothing of such happened at the pre- school!!!!!!! It is logic and is crystal clear that this case did not happened at the pre- school!!!!!!! If the little boy was sexually molested, it would have happened somewhere else!!!!! The parents of this child should be more careful and be more responsible> Why wait so long to report !!! The little infant can say anything out of fear!!!!! Gossip has been spreading in town wanting to make belief that it is the pre- school fault but evidence shows that this gossip is mostly incorrect !!!!!!!!!!! Truth should not rely on gossip but in solid evidence.!!!!!! Thank you !!!!!
