Cop accused of incest, another man detained for sex with child

A junior ranking police officer is under investigation for incest.

It is alleged the corporal of over 20 years had unlawful sexual intercourse with his daughter who is 11 years old.

The incident has allegedly been ongoing for some time and the matter came to light after the child reported it to a relative.

The officer last performed duties at the St John’s Police Station Sunday morning and has since been pulled off the job after the report was filed Sunday afternoon.

The police confirmed the matter is under investigation and says further action will be taken where and when necessary.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, a 35 year old man was allegedly caught having sexual intercourse with a 14 year old girl at Fort James Beach Sunday night.

Police who were patrolling the area, say they observed suspicious activity in a vehicle and when they approached they found the duo inside engaging in sex.

It is alleged the man took his daughter and her friend to buy pizza on Popeshead Street Sunday night and he left his child there and went off with her friend to commit the act.

Neither the corporal nor the other man was charged up to the time of this publication.
