TRINIDAD EXPRESS – A 25-year-old man is expected to be charged and brought before a Port of Spain magistrate after he was allegedly caught in the act of sexually assaulting a bedridden 82-year-old woman.
According to police reports, about 6 p.m. last Saturday, officers of the Besson Street Police Station received a report that an 82-year-old woman was sexually assaulted.
A team of officers, including Cpl Chinpire and WPC Bostic, visited the home where the report allegedly took place in Laventille and had cause to arrest an assistant to the woman’s caregiver.
The officers conducted enquiries and were informed that the woman was bedridden as she had suffered from a number of ailments, including Alzheimer’s disease as well as Parkinson’s disease.
One of the woman’s grandchildren had gone to her room to check on her and allegedly found the caregiver’s assistant sexually assaulting the elderly woman.
An alarm was raised and the man was detained.
