Soldier charged with assault on minors

A soldier with the TT Defence Force appeared before a Port of Spain Magistrate on charges of indecent assault against two minors.

The charges are related to alleged offences dating back to 2014.

The soldier, who holds the rank of Lance Corporal, appeared before Seventh Court Magistrate Adia Mohammed and was granted bail in the sum of $80,000 with surety.

The soldier’s father was accepted as the surety and up to midday yesterday relatives were trying to secure bail.

The army officer was arrested on Thursday following an intensive investigation by police.

It is alleged that the soldier indecently assaulted 14-year-old and an eight-year-old starting in 2014.

Corporal Reyes of Carenage Police led the investigation.

The soldier is to reappear in court on September 22. He was represented by defence attorney Brent Winter.
