A 15-year old young man from Fontenoy, St. George’s has been slapped with three counts of rape.
The young man who is a recent graduate from a prestigious school in St. George’s and is currently unemployed is accused of raping an 11-year old boy on three different occasions.
The sexual onslaught on the young boy began in the month of May.
A well placed source told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper the school boy was sexually molested on two occasions in the month of May.
However, it was on the third occasion of the sexual assault that took place last month that the parents of the victim became aware of what was happening to their child.
The source said that the last incident occurred in the early morning of September 16 on the school compound.
The source who spoke on condition of not being named said neighbours in the vicinity witnessed the incident and were able to raise the alarm.
The boy was rushed to the St. George’s General Hospital by his school principal who alerted the mother that her son was at the hospital.
This newspaper learnt that the medical team at the Accident and Emergency Department of the General Hospital was able to extract semen from the boy’s buttocks.
The incident has outraged the parents of the victim who believes that a full investigation needs to be carried out by the Ministry of Education as very little detail is being released to them by the school over the incident.
They are saying that since the boy was in the care of the school, it is the school’s responsibility to ensure that the students are protected from intruders.
