A 45-year-old man from Linden was yesterday found guilty of raping a 6-year-old girl and sexually assaulting her.
The convict, Selwyn Lancaster offered no comment to the Court after the 12 member jury returned the guilty verdict on Wednesday.
The incident took place in November last year while Lancaster was visiting the home of the child. He was friends with the child’s mother.
In a statement to the Court, the child revealed the trauma that she has endured since the incident and explained that she never wants to see the man again and he should be jailed.
The presiding judge in the matter will hand down sentencing later this month.
