WESTMORELAND, Jamaica – A 19-year-old man has been charged with raping a five-year-old girl in Westmoreland.
Peter McDonald, otherwise called ‘Junior’, a delivery man from Westmoreland, has been charged with rape following a police probe into the incident, which occurred last week.
The child, a student, has since been admitted to hospital, the police said.
It was reported that sometime in the afternoon on November 22, 2023, the child was at home, when she was lured to the next-door neighbour’s house.
While there, police said her clothes were reportedly removed, and she was penetrated via her vagina.
A report was made to the police, and the child medically examined and later admitted to hospital.
McDonald was arrested and subsequently charged following police investigations.
