Police in Gbarnga, Bong County have charged and sent to court a 42 – year – old man, William Gboe, for allegedly raping an eleven-year-old girl.
According to the police charge sheet, the incident occurred on Friday, 22 October 2021 during night hours.
The victim told police investigation that defendant William Gboe went outside to urinate, and she followed him to urinate as well because she was afraid of going out alone.
Unfortunately, the victim said when they went back inside, the defendant allegedly entered her room, removed her clothes, and raped her.
After she was allegedly raped, she said defendant Gboe further threatened to kill her if she told anyone the story.
“H said he would kill me if I attempt to tell anyone what he did to me. I was afraid so I didn’t tell anyone. But one of my aunties suspected what was happening to me, so when she asked me, I explained it to her,” the survival added.
When the survivor’s mother got to know the story, she immediately informed the Women and Children Protection Section (WACPS) of the Liberia Nation Police (LNP).
Following the complaint by the alleged rape survivor’s mother, defendant Gboe was arrested and detained at the Gbarnga police station for investigation.
The defendant denied any wrongdoing but admitted to police investigators that he has been sleeping in the same house with the girl and that most of the time he brings her outside at night to urinate.
He said he was flabbergasted to have heard that the girl’s mother complained him for raping her daughter.
Medical reports from the C.B Dunbar Hospital proved that the eleven-year-old girl was tampered with.
The defendant is a resident of Zowienta who came to Gbarnga to dig a septic tank for a relative of the victim.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/police-charge-man-37-for-rape/—Edited by Winston W. Parley
