- pretend to be casting out
demons from the child
A 33-year-old cane cutter and married father of two, of
Adelphi Village East Canje, Berbice, was on Monday, last,
charged with having carnal knowledge of his 15-year-old niece
and impregnating her.
The man was on arraigned before Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo at
the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court and was granted bail to
the tune of $120,000.
The charge states that between October 1 and October 31, 2011,
at Glasgow Village East Bank Berbice, the accused had sex on
several occasions with the teenager.
Reports are that the man who professed himself to be a
‘wuckman’ would regularly visit the home of his relatives
at Glasgow and on a number of visits during the aforementioned
dates, he would pretend to be
casting out demons from the child and
engage in sexual intercourse with her. The child
subsequently became sick and was found to be pregnant.
He was later arrested and charged.
The magistrate ordered that the accused should not go within
300 yards of the Virtual Complainant and is to report to the
Reliance Police Station every Tuesday.
