Residents of a Carenage community took justice into their own hands after a man reportedly buggered a young child in their area this morning.
According to police, just after 8am, the child’s grandmother made a report that the man buggered and molested him.
While recording the information, police were told that residents of Upper Abbe Poujade or ‘Scorpion’ were seen beating a man of African descent, slim-built and dark complexion. They also stripped him and tied him to a pole.
A party of officers from the Carenage Police Station and the Carenage Criminal Investigations Department (CID) led by A/Cpl Williams and Lewis responded.
On arrival, they met a man fitting the description tied to a pole with rope and wire. He was naked and bleeding from several wounds about the body.
