A Portland security guard is now in police custody for allegedly raping a 10 year-old-girl in the community of Breastwork on the weekend.

According to the police, the child left her home and went to a nearby river with family and friends on Saturday afternoon.

It is alleged that after swimming, the girl decided to head home for a change of clothing, but did not return and family members became worried.

The police say the girl’s sister went to investigate and found the child naked and crying.

An alarm was raised and the security guard was later picked up by the police.

Residents, however, converged at the Port Antonio Police Station demanding that the man be turned over to them.

The residents claim it was not the first time the security guard, believed to be in his 40s, was sexually molesting the child.

He is also said to be involved in a relationship with the child's mother.
