Police search for 2 men who raped girl, 10
Barataria Police up to late yesterday were searching for two men who abducted and raped a ten-year-old schoolgirl in El Socorro on Sunday night. Investigators said around 9.30 pm, the Standard Four pupil went with her two brothers and father to a DVD store. The girl’s father reportedly entered the store to buy the movies, leaving his children outside. When he left the store a couple of minutes later, he realised his children were missing. The man told investigators he believed the children had walked back to their nearby home. While returning home, the man found his two sons in the roadway near the family’s house.
The boys told their father that while waiting by the store, a white car pulled alongside them and two men bundled them inside. The boys, who are both said to be under ten, said they were released shortly afterwards. Police were contacted and an hour later the ten-year-old girl was found a short distance from where she had been abducted. The girl told investigators that after dropping her brother off, the men took her to a secluded location and took turns raping her.
She was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, where she was medically examined. The examination showed the girl had been sexually assaulted, police said. Up to late yesterday, both suspects were still being sought. The family was visited by officers of the Police Victims Support Unit, who will provide counselling for the children and their parents. Police sources said the children gave a clear description of their attackers, which would help investigators find them. ASP Mahabir, of the Barataria Police Station, is leading the investigations.
