REAL NEWS: Another minor reportedly has been sexually molested, and the Police are conducting investigations into the claim.

Allegations are that an eight-year-old girl was raped by a man who is known to her.

Reports say that, on October 1, the child’s mother took her to the Criminal Investigations Department and reported the sexual offence.

It is alleged that the man had been violating the girl over time and that the abuse had started between eight months and a year ago.

It was only last week that a nine-year-old was indecently assaulted by an unknown man, who touched her chest inappropriately and kissed her on the cheek.

In that incident, the perpetrator allegedly led the child away from school, took her to a secluded area, and assaulted her.

Meanwhile, concerns remain about an increase in rape cases, as was confirmed by a health professional, who warned that females in the communities of Creekside, Golden Grove, Nut Grove, and Grays Farm are especially vulnerable.

Several victims have shared their experiences with REAL News and chided the Police for not bringing the situation to the public.
