An 11-year-old student, a resident of Sunset Park at Mile 8 on the George Price Highway, narrowly escaped an act of sodomy on Tuesday, July 9, within the Sunset Park area.
The minor, along with his mother, went to the Hattieville police station and reported that sometime between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. that day, he was on his way to a nearby shop when he met a young man whom he knew.
The young man invited him to go to a friend’s house in the immediate vicinity. The 11-year-old told police that after arriving at the house, they both were invited inside.
However, the friend that he had accompanied suddenly turned on him and he found himself being assaulted by his so-called friend, and another young man.
The so-called friend he came with then abandoned him, while the other young man held him against a bed in an attempt to sodomize him.
Fortunately, the 11-year-old was able to get away from his attacker and made a run for it. He reported the matter to his mother, who then took him to the police, who are now seeking the two youths in connection with the report.
