Officers of the North Eastern Division CPU had launched a probe, which resulted in the man's arrest.

The Child Protection Unit (CPU) is urging parents and guardians to protect their children during the Carnival Season from sexual predators and criminals, who will be preying on the vulnerable and unsuspecting persons.

The CPU’s warning comes as a 38-year-old man was granted $80,000 bail with surety, when he appeared before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate on Thursday 20th February 2020, charged with the sexual touching of a child.

The accused, of Lower Santa Cruz, was arrested because of an incident in which he was depicted in a video abusing a female minor.

An investigation subsequently was launched by officers of the North Eastern Division CPU, which resulted in the arrest of the man.

PC Castle of the North Eastern Division CPU laid the charges following the investigation, which was spearheaded by W/Supt (Ag.) George and supervised by W/Insp. Paul.
