A 16-year-old youngster of Troumaca is expected to appear before the Family Court this week to answer charges relating to the alleged sexual assault of a 7-year-old boy.
A law enforcement source told I-Witness News that the teenager is to be charged with buggery and gross indecency.
It is alleged that the teenager buggered the 7-year-old boy, who is also a resident of Troumaca, sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.
The alleged crime is said to have been discovered when the child was seen walking with “a severe limp and rubbing his bottom”.
The child is said to have also had diarrhoea and was vomiting as well as passing blood.
His mother is said to have inquired about what happen and the child told her of the alleged sexual assault.
