Trinidad & Tobago: Beetham man granted bail after alleged cruelty to daughters

Police said a 35-year-old man was granted $10,000 bail after being charged with beating his eight and nine-year-old daughters. 

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) said the Beetham man was granted $10,000 bail after appearing before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate yesterday charged with two counts of cruelty to his daughters.

The accused was also ordered by Magistrate Indar Jagroo to report daily to the Child Protection Unit (CPU).

He will reappear before the court on May 17, 2021.

The man was arrested and charged on April 17, 2021 by W/Cpl (Ag.) Deonarine of the Port-of-Spain CPU following a report made to police by a woman that her two daughters were physically assaulted by their father.

A subsequent investigation led detectives to discover that on the night of April 5, 2021, the girls, ages eight and nine, were at their Beetham Gardens home when their father allegedly arrived while being under the influence of alcohol.

According to the girls, their father attempted to locate a bottle of honey mustard, and when unable to do so, became enraged and began physically assaulting the children.

The girls were taken to hospital where they were medically treated for injuries said to have occurred during the ordeal.

The man was later arrested and charged with two counts of cruelty to two children.
