(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – A MEMBER of the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force was held by police yesterday following a report of a sexual assault of a boy.

Officers from the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) and the Child Protection Unit (CPU) held the 42-year-old soldier at Delhi Street around 1.40 p.m. yesterday.

The soldier was being questioned last night.

Acting ASP Roger Alexander spoke about the arrest during TV6’s Beyond the Tape programme last night.

He said: “I understand that he is a high-ranking member of the Defence Force.

“He has lived in several areas and one of those areas is Santa Cruz.

“Knowing the Child Protection Unit as I do, I know that no stone, no carpet, no tile, no floorboard will be left unturned.”
