Man facing charges of defilement

July 29, 2017 12:59 am

A twenty-eight-year-old man who is alleged to have impregnated a fourteen-year-old girl has been remanded in custody.

The accused appeared at the Nasinu Magistrates Court last week.

Police say the man who is the victim’s neighbour is charged with three counts of defiling a young girl between the ages of thirteen and sixteen.

The health authorities alerted the police about the matter last week when they discovered that the victim is pregnant.

Nasinu police are still investigating the matter.
