Detectives of the Spanish Town Centre office of the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) have charged a high school coach with abduction, indecent assault and rape in relation to one of  his female students.

The 30-year-old coach from the St Catherine-based school is scheduled to appear before the St Catherine Parish Court tomorrow.

The police say on the afternoon of December 13, 2017 the female student, after completing track and field training, was offered a ride by the  coach to the bus stop.

The accused reportedly drove past the child’s bus stop and onto a dirt track off the Spanish Town bypass, close to the El Prado Housing Scheme in St Catherine, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

The matter was reported to the police on December 19 where investigations led to the arrest of the coach.

He was charged last week Monday.
