Three persons are now in police custody following the impregnation of a 12-year-old girl.

Investigators say a report was made to the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse that the child was impregnated by an adult with whom she allegedly has a relationship.

It’s also alleged that the child’s parents knew about the relationship.

The three have been arrested on suspicion of cruelty to a child, failure to report abuse to the Office of the Children’s Registry and aiding and abetting sexual intercourse with a person under 16-years-old.

They have also been charged with grievous sexual assault, sexual touching, and sexual intercourse with a person under 16-year-old.

The police say their identities are being withheld pending further investigation.
