Unbelievable! 5 year old a victim of aggravated assault?

Alvan Gentle

There are allegations of a heinous crime against a five year old girl in the Capital. According to Belmopan Police, the five year old accompanied by her mother made the report that her stepfather fondled her on Wednesday just after they came home from a visit at his relatives on New Year’s Day. Since the report was made, Belmopan Police has been looking for the stepfather, a resident of Belmopan, who is likely to be charged with aggravated assault of an indecent nature. News Five spoke via phone to Officer Commanding Belmopan Police, Superintendent Alvan Gentle.

“The second of January, 2013, a five year old female minor accompanied by her mother visited the police station and reported that on Tuesday, the first, she went with her stepfather to stay at his family’s house and upon returning back home the following day—being yesterday, the second—the stepfather took off her clothes; being her tights and her panty, and allegedly rubbed his hand against her vagina. Subsequent to this report, the child was taken to the Belmopan Hospital where the doctors certified that this child had been carnally known. Pending this report, the police is now seeking the stepfather, a resident of Belmopan pending charges of aggravated assault. The doctor is saying that the child is carnally known. Whether the adult had sex with the child or it was just fondling, it is not known at this moment. The investigation is still being conducted; however, this person is being sought with respect to this particular investigation.”

    Experience teaches that child molesters rarely have only one victim — has this man done the same thing before?

    Raping a five year old should be a hanging offense. As a rule, I think sexual predators should ALL be castrated — it has been used elsewhere and effectively prevents repeat offenses — but in a case as heinous as this one, death is fine with me.

    If the man is on the run, that seems pretty good evidence of guilt.

    The worst thing a child can go through, is for own who she looks up to for protection abuse her, sad sad, it hurt to know that these type of people exist among us. Mothers need to be careful who they let into their and their kids life, they need to be on the alert of these types of things. All the child innocents is gone. I agree they should castrated them since they can’t be hang. Something need to be done and NOW. Dont wait until it happen to one of our leader’s family member act now…get up and fight, you dont know when it will be your turn.

    Well said, Buddy.

    There seems to be some consensus among Belizeans who comment here that convicted sex offenders should be castrated — WHY ISN’T THERE EVEN ONE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE IN THIS WHOLE NATION WHO WILL INTRODUCE A LAW TO CASTRATE AND OTHERWISE INCREASE PUNISHMENT FOR CHILD RAPISTS?

    We have a parliament full of clowns masquerading as lawmakers, while all they want is their government cars and fingers in the cookie jar. I’d give a lot to have a single honest patriot elected some day.
