Jamaican arrested in Trinidad after being 'caught with 14-y-o girl'

A 23-year-old Jamaican national is to be further questioned after he was found with an underage girl at his El Dorado apartment in Trinidad.

Police officers there reported that the mother of a 14-year-old girl reported that her daughter left home with a man in a red car.

The vehicle was subsequently spotted outside an apartment in El Dorado by law enforcers, who went inside and spoke to the Jamaican who was there.

After denying that the teen was at his apartment, a search of the premises was conducted and the girl was found in a cupboard in the bedroom.

The Jamaican reportedly tried to run from the scene, but was held and detained by the police, according to media reports.

Both individuals were taken to a police station, where the minor reportedly indicated that she had been sexually penetrated.

The Northern Division Child Protection Unit in Trinidad is continuing investigations into the incident.
