Officers attached to the Tobago-arm of the Child Protection Unit (CPU) of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service are closing in on a man accused of buggering a 15-year-old student.
Police say the incident occurred at the home of the teenager on Monday.
According to a police report, the student, who lives with his mother, was home alone around 7 pm when a man known to the family visited them.
The report said the man began playing a wrestling game he normally plays with the youngster. However, the man allegedly pinned the youngster on his stomach during the play fight and buggered him.
The boy’s mother told T&T Guardian she was devastated following the incident.
“I went to get dinner for my children and I left my son ironing his school clothes. I know the man very well, as we all grew up together and he is accustomed to visiting us and keeping my son company,” she cried.
“Words can’t describe what’s it’s like to come home and meet your son covered in blood and crying. How do we move forward knowing the person who did this is a family friend?”
She said after learning of the attack she immediately took her son to the police station where she made a report. She said the officers sent her to the Scarborough General Hospital for her son to be examined.
Acting Senior Superintendent Jeffrey George told Guardian Media that WPC Procope-Mayers is conducting investigations into the matter.
