A man from Cayo has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison on charges of 2 counts of carnal knowledge and aggravated assault upon his 13-year-old niece and 2 counts of aggravated assault against his 10-year-old niece.

The young victims of the assault—who are sisters—went to the San Ignacio police, accompanied by their mother, and reported that their uncle has been molesting them. The 13-year-old reported that her uncle raped her on two different occasions, while the 10-year-old told police that her uncle fondled her private parts on several occasions, the last being in February of this year.

Police took the 13-year-old to the San Ignacio Hospital, where doctors examined her and found that she had been carnally known.

Police immediately arrested the uncle, 38, and charged him with the sexual offences. He was taken to court on Friday, April 12. He pleaded not guilty to the offenses, but bail was not offered to him and he was remanded into custody until June 20.

Police were also seeking an Orange Walk resident to charge him after they were informed that he has been engaging in sex with his 12-year-old stepdaughter since she was 4, with the last incident taking place in December.

Today, Thursday, police report that they have located and arrested the stepfather, and they will take him to the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, Friday, on charges of carnal knowledge.

The girl, accompanied by her mother, went to Orange Walk police on Friday, April 12, and reported that her stepfather has been engaging her in sex since she was four years old, whenever her mother left her alone with him.

The child also stated that in December of 2012, he took her to an abandoned house in the area and raped her.

Police took the child to the Orange Walk Hospital, where doctors who examined her concluded that the girl had been carnally known.
