Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

The police had to rescue a man from an angry mob recently after it was alleged that he used a mango to lure a nine-year-old girl to his house in order to make sexual advances on her.

The members of the St Catherine South police had to rush to the community, near Old Harbour, St Catherine, after the mob decided they wanted to 'discipline' the man.

It is alleged that he had touched the girl inappropriately after luring her to his house by promising to give her ripe mangoes.

It is further alleged that after giving the child the fruits, he touched her upper body and made suggestive remarks to her.

Following his advances, the child was said to have managed to run from the premises and related her ordeal to her parents.

Soon thereafter, persons descended on the dwelling and demanded that he be flogged, however, the police intervened.

The accused man was taken into police custody on suspicion of sexual touching.
