The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has recommended no charges against two primary school students, who allegedly sodomised a six-year-old boy in an East Coast Demerara (ECD) school washroom on December 04, last.
This morning, Divisional Commander, ASP Royston Andries-Junor said that his ranks interviewed the two students—nine and 10, who were accused of sexual assault of their school mate and the file was sent for advice.
That file was however returned to the police with recommendations for the young suspects to receive counselling. The matter is currently engaging the attention of the Child Care and Protection Agency.
On December 04, a six-year-old boy alleged that he was taken to the school’s washroom by two older boys and molested. A medical examination showed that the child was assaulted.
A police source has since revealed that one of the suspects has confessed to the assault, claiming that he inserted a pencil into the child’s anus while the second student denied the allegation.
Parents at the school are now calling on the Ministry of Education to have the two students expelled from the institute. After the incident was reported, a group of parents protested in front of the facility, calling for the boys to be removed.
They claimed that the two boys are bullies and would usually harass other students by taking away their pencil and money.
Calls to the Ministry of Education went unanswered.
