stepdad held for molesting 13-year-old
The St Catherine South police have taken a man in custody in connection with the raping of his 13-year-old stepdaughter.
Information reaching THE STAR is that the man was arrested following investigations that he sexually molested the child after being left alone with her.
Police said the suspect was estranged from the child's mother for years. He recently returned to the dwelling after saying that his life was being threatened where he was living in the Corporate Area. As an act of kindness, he was allowed to stay at the house.
The police said allegations are that one day after other occupants of the house left to go elsewhere, he reportedly held the child and molested her.
The child was treated at hospital. A report was made to the police and an investigation launched, which later resulted in the suspect being arrested.
