Officers attached to the Tobago- arm of the Child Protection Unit (CPU) of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service say an arrest is imminent after a 15-year-old male student of a secondary school in Scarborough was allegedly buggered at his home on Monday, November 26.
According to the police report, the student who resides with his mother was home alone around 7pm when a man known to the family visited them.
The report says the man began playing a wrestling game; he normally plays, with the youngster.
It noted that the older man eventually pinned the youngster on his stomach and allegedly buggered him.
The boy’s mother told Guardian Media she is devastated.
“I went to get dinner for my children and I left my son ironing his school clothes. I know the man very well as we all grew up together and he is accustomed to visiting us and keeping my son company," she cried.
"Words can't describe what's it's like to come home and meet your son covered in blood and crying. How do we move forward knowing the person who did this is a family friend?” the mother asked.
She said after learning of the attack, she immediately took her son to the police station where she made a report.
She said the officers sent her to the Scarborough General Hospital for her son to be examined.
Acting Senior Superintendent Jeffrey George told Guardian Media that WPC Procope-Mayers is conducting investigations into the matter.
