A 16-year-old mentally ill boy had to recently seek medical attention after he was allegedly buggered by a man in Waugh Hill, St Catherine.
The harrowing incident took place on June 2, some time before 5:30 p.m.
The teen’s father, a farmer, said he was in his hut when his oldest son came to him with his brother and recounted the horrific ordeal.
“I saw the older one running with the younger one. The younger one was raped in an abandoned building,” the father explained.
He said his oldest son told the teenager to take off his pants so that he could see if he had been molested. He said that what he saw was damage done to his son’s anus. “I was so frightened,” the father said.
The father said that his son had to be rescued by another relative, who claimed to have heard moaning and groaning and who used a piece of board to hit the man off the teenager.
The perpetrator of the heinous act, was known to the community as a troublemaker and at the time of the incident, was set upon and beaten by an angry mob before fleeing the area.
The fathr claimed that the man was also responsible for robberies and the molestation of animals in that community. Days after the incident it is said that the 16-year-old was taken in for medical attention at a clinic along Slipe Pen Road in Kingston.
Meanwhile, head of the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse, Deputy Superintendent Veronica Gilzene, said she was unable to comment on the matter due to its sensitive nature.
