Reports today that a 12 year old child has allegedly been sexually assaulted at a Secondary school in East Trinidad.
The child has filed a report with the TTPS, alleging that she was assaulted by a male student in the school’s bathroom. The incident is said to have occurred last week Monday at around 11am. The girl told officers that she had gone to the restroom to retrieve her mobile phone she had forgotten there earlier, when she was attacked.
The alleged culprit is said to be 16 years of age. Members of the Child Protection Unit have since been investigating the matter in tandem with the Cumuto Police.
A medical report has also been obtained and the teenage boy is expected to be questioned on the matter. The girl, police reports state, did not tell her peers or teachers at the school about the incident when it occurred. It was only upon arriving at her home, did she relay her ordeal to her mother.
