Photos released by the victim’s family showing bruises about her body from the alleged physical assault she received during the past week.
A file is being prepared to be sent to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Chambers to seek legal advice after a 23-year-old man has been accused of sexually and physically assaulting a 14-year-old girl.
The victim and suspect are known to each other and the alleged assault reportedly occurred on different occasions this month.
The 23-year-old, who resides in Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), was arrested recently and remains in police custody.
Investigations are ongoing.
