A 39-year-old man is now in Police custody for allegedly raping three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17. Police Headquarters said that the offence was committed in 2020 and between January 1 and October 8, 2021.
According to the victims, the suspect is known to them personally and they would often get permission from their parents to go to his house to do chores.
On several occasions, the suspect allegedly threatened the boys at knifepoint and raped them.
According to a Police report, the boys were afraid to tell anyone about the incident. “But it became overbearing and the first victim told a family member what transpired,” a Police report noted.
As a result, a report was made to the Police and investigations led to the arrest of the suspect on Sunday. He is presently in custody assisting with the investigation.
