A 30 year old man appeared before a Chaguanas Magistrate this morning charged with a committing a sexual offence against a six-year-old boy.
Police, the man, committed the act some time ago in a well-known church but the child did not alert anyone at the time.
It was only yesterday that the child, while out with his father, pointed out the man and revealed that the he had unzipped his pants and fondled him.
The upset father alerted nearby police officers and the man was held.
Police said the man admitted that he had touched the child in an inappropriate manner and that he had committed similar offences on several other children.
The police are now warning parents to exercise caution with church camps and other activities they allow children to participate in during the July/August vacation as predators use these opportunities to prey on children.
