A Constable attached to the Georgetown City Constabulary has been fired and handed over to Police after he allegedly sexually assaulted a young man who was in the city constabulary’s custody.
The move comes after City Hall conducted its own probe of the matter and decided to call in the police to institute more investigations and charges.
According to reports, the constable was caught in a sex act with the teen, moments after the teen was taken into custody for loitering.
The senior Constable who walked in and reportedly witnessed the sex act has also been fired. He has been reportedly fired because he did not immediately rescue the teen and never bothered to log the incident into the duty book.
He reportedly filed a complaint about the issue the next day.
The teen has since been taken into the protective custody of the child care and protection agency. And the incident has caused a major embarrassment for the Georgetown City Council as it came under attack for not moving fast enough to act on the complaint.
City Hall officials have explained that a thorough investigation needed to be done before action was taken.
