child rape

A SECURITY OFFICER out on bail for allegedly raping a teenager, appeared before the court yesterday charged with the rape of the same child.

Rajkumar Rampersad, 22 of Williamsville, was denied bail when he faced magistrate Nalini Singh at the Rio Claro court as it was alleged that he had committed a new offence while on bail for the other matters.

Rampersad was charged with sexually penetrating the 16-year-old girl during the Carnival period. Last year September he was charged with raping the girl.

Constable Rajkumar laid the charges against Rampersad in both instances.

The girl, who went missing last week Friday, was found over the weekend with a man in a shack five miles into a forested area off Cachipe Village, Moruga.
