Divisional Commander, Yonette Stephens, has confirmed that her ranks are awaiting legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) in the case where a grandfather has been accused of raping his six-year-old granddaughter.
Stephens said that the file was sent to the office of the DPP yesterday and it is expected to be returned to the police tomorrow.
The 54-year-old man was allegedly caught raping his granddaughter while watching porn two Wednesdays ago at his Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home where the child and her five-year-old brother had been living since the passing of their father over a year ago.
A medical examination has confirmed that the little girl has been sexually molested.
According to information received, on Wednesday, a neighbour was doing some work in his yard when he overheard the little girl crying, “Nana don’t do that.” The curious neighbour allegedly climbed onto the suspect’s roof and saw him looking at porn while raping the child. He raised an alarm.
The child’s mother alleged that when she was informed of the assault, she questioned the little girl and was told that she had been molested over 10 times. The woman said that she also found out that her father had also raped his eldest daughter when she was a child.
