An 11-year old girl, who climbed a tree to escape the sexual advances of a 59-year old man, was bitten on her vagina after the man failed to have sexual intercourse with her.
The man of Cumberland Village was taken into police custody, while investigators await advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
Police were told that the incident occurred on July 25 at the girl’s home at another Corentyne village. The laws prevent disclosure of the alleged perpetrator or their specific addresses in order to protect the girl’s identity.
When the intoxicated man arrived at the girl’s home, she told him to leave as she was alone. He, however, persisted and when she escaped up a tree, he pursued her.
The man allegedly took her into her house, stripped and tied her up. When he failed to have sexual intercourse with her, he allegedly bit her vagina.
