The Police have confirmed that a serving member of the Police Organization is currently in police custody after report of sexual assault was made against him.
A release from the Strategic Communication Department indicates that the report was made on Monday 10th October by a 13 year old female. ZDK News was reliably informed that the accused is a fireman and the minor is his daughter but those reports have not been confirmed.
Members of the Serious Crime Unit within the Criminal Investigations Department have interviewed the minor and are investigating the matter.
The Police Administration says they will investigate the matters with the highest level of professionalism, impartiality and in the best interest of Justice.
Meantime, the Police added that they continue to make every effort in getting the other accused officer back to Antigua to answer to the allegations made against him.
According to the release, discussions are ongoing between the local police and Immigrations Officials and their police counterparts in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
