(CMR) St. Catherine, Jamaica
A 15-year-old child in Portmore, Jamaica has reported that she was allegedly raped by a doctor during a medical procedure.
Her mother is demanding justice for her child after the August 27 incident. During an interview with TVJ the child revealed to her mother, that after being sedated, she was sexually assaulted by the doctor.
She was taken there around 9:45 pm for a medical procedure. The doctor allegedly sexually assaulted her inside his office. The mother said that she reported the matter to the police later that night.
After that, the teenager was taken to the Spanish Town Hospital for a medical examination. A rape kit was done and an investigation was launched.
Apparently the doctor was tipped off about her police report undermining their confidence in the authorities. He called her shortly after making a report to the police station. The police have confirmed receiving a report and that an investigation is underway.
The police have listed the unnamed physician as a person of interest and he remains at large at this time.
She shared the rumor is he has done this before with no consequences. Her daughter continues to struggle with the ordeal and requires counseling.
Jamaica has a history of one of the world records in the world for sexual assault with children and teens often being a convenient victim for many perpetrators.
