A 25-year-old PH driver of Barataria will appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today, charged with sexual touching of a minor.

According to an official Police Service release, the charge arose out of an incident involving the girl, who was travelling in a vehicle with the suspect.

The victim reported to police that the man drove her to a dead end in the vicinity of Queen Avenue, Barataria, where he allegedly lifted up her dress, pulled out his penis and rubbed it against her leg.

The suspect was arrested and charged on Saturday 28 November 2020, by PC Castle of the North-Eastern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU).

The PH driver will answer to the charge when the matter comes up for hearing at the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court today, Monday 30 November 2020.
