Two Minors Raped in Dangriga

Joseph Myvett

There is a disturbing rape case coming out of the south tonight. Two children were allegedly raped by a man in Dangriga.  Police say that on the twenty-third of this month, a woman visited the police station to report that two of her relatives, ages five and nine, were sexually molested. Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett tells us more.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“A twenty-nine year old woman visited the Dangriga Police Station in the company of two female minors who are related to her where they reported to the police that sometime between December 2019 and January 2020 they were forced to perform sexual acts on a male person whom the police have since detained and later charged for three counts of rape of a child. That person is one Michael Elijio of a Dangriga Town address. I believe he is twenty-four-years-old.”



“You said they are minors, are you able to share their age?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“One is five years old and one is nine-years-old.”
