A 23-year-old Jamaican man is in custody after he was found with a minor at his El Dorado apartment on Thursday morning.
Police said the mother of a 14-year-old girl reported to the Pinto Road police post that her 14-year-old daughter had left home with a man in a red car.
Police found the car outside an apartment at Boodoo Street, El Dorado.
They went to the apartment and spoke to the man, but he denied having the girl with him. However, they searched the apartment.
The man tried to run away but was caught.
Police found the girl hiding in a cupboard in the bedroom.
Both were taken to the Pinto Road police post, where she was interviewed and said she had been sexually penetrated.
The Northern Division Child Protection Unit is continuing enquiries.
