STANN CREEK DISTRICT, Mon. Dec. 14, 2015–Three mothers of three young boys of a village in the Stann Creek District are devastated after their sons were sexually assaulted by one of their own relatives, a 17-year-old young man.
Two of the boys are 12, and the other is 11.
The 17-year-old minor has since been arrested and charged with aggravated assault of an indecent nature and committing an unnatural act, and will be taken to the Family Court in Dangriga to be arraigned on the charges.
The incidents allegedly occurred on November 11, November 13, and November 16, 2015. The three boys, accompanied by their mothers, told police that the trusted relative visited the separate homes of the young boys in the village, and took sexual advantage of them when they were left alone with him in the homes.
The boys told their mothers what had happened, and the mothers contacted the Human Services Department, who alerted police.
