Officers of the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) have arrested a soldier for rape and buggery of a child.

Just after midday today, officers intercepted the soldier along Panka Street, St James, as they believe he was on his way to pick up another child from a school.

Police say that the child was likely to be his second victim.

The officers earlier rescued a child who was found tied up in a house.

They say there is evidence that the child was raped and buggered.

The officers say the soldier could be charged with kidnapping, rape, and buggery.

This is a developing story and we will have more later.
