Two teenage boys have been charged with rape and aiding and abetting rape following an incident involving a 12-year-old girl in Crooks Bottom District, in St Elizabeth.
The incident is said to have taken place two years ago. The matter was reported to the police and the boys were taken into custody on Thursday and charged.
Reports are that the child went to her neighbour’s house to use the internet for online school. While there, a 17-year-old boy held her down and allowed his 16-year-old relative to sexually assault her.
The incident was reported to the police and an investigation launched. The boys were subsequently arrested and charged.
Their court date is being finalised.
