An Accra Circuit Court has remanded a 27-year-old into police custody for inserting his penis into the mouth of a three-year-old girl at East Legon a suburb of Accra.

The accused known as Augustine Badu who works as a care taker at the victim’s residence and pleaded not guilty of indecent assault is expected to reappear before the court on October 5, 2016.

According to the prosecuting officer Detective Inspector Kofi Atimbire, the victim who vomited as result of Badu’s act resides at East Legon with her family.

He added that the victim is the daughter of the complainant in the case who lodged a complaint with the police after the victim informed her of the incident.

Detective Inspector Atimbire said the accused who have been working at the residence of the complainant with the help of an agency two months ago starts work at 0800 hours and closes at 1700 hours daily.

He revealed that on September 24, Badu reported to work and met the complainant and the victim in the house.

At about 1530 hours, the complaint was busily attending to some visitors and left the victim in the living room to watch television when Badu sneaked into the living room and lured the victim into a corner of the living room and inserted his penis deeply into the victim’s mouth.

Due to that, the prosecutor said the victim vomited but Badu cleaned it and warned her not to inform anyone about what had happened.

The victim, however, informed her mother a day after the incident, who also reported the case to the Police.

The Police issued a medical form to the complainant to send the victim to the hospital while Badu was picked up by the Police.
