KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, CMC – Police were searching for a man who allegedly raped a six-year-old girl resulting in her undergoing emergency surgery yesterday.

Media reports state that the child had been found by relatives yesterday morning “awash with blood” after she had apparently been taken from her home in the South Leeward community on Friday night.

“She reportedly told her family that a man of a particular description had removed her from their house and taken her to another section of the village, where the assault reportedly took place,” iWitness News reported.

The news outlet said the child told her family that she walked back to her house after the sexual assault resulting in much speculation as to whether the assailant could be someone close to the family or with knowledge of their security situation.
