A 17-year-old Point Fortin pupil has been arrested by police and charged with having sex with a 12-year-old girl.
The teenager was detained earlier this week at his home and was expected to appear in court on two counts of having sex with a girl under the age of 14 years old.
Police said the girl’s mother came to the Point Fortin Police Station in February and reported that sometime between September last year and February this year the boy had sexual intercourse with her daughter. The teenage boy, police said, was a distant relative of the girl and had lived in the house with her at the time of the incidents.
Police said the girl wrote the Secondary Assessment Examination (SEA) earlier this month.
The charges were laid by WPC Francois.
