By Aaron Humes: 56 year old security guard Baltazar Vasquez is accused of assaulting a five year old girl by penetration and grievous harm.
Appearing before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford, he was denied bail on the indictable offences and remanded to the Central Prison.
Two days ago on March sixth, the child’s mother said she had gone out to the corner grocery shop to change money to give her daughter for school.
As she returned home, she met the child wiping her mouth with her hand, Vasquez standing a few feet away.
The little girl told her that Vasquez had just kissed her, touched her and fondled her private area with a finger.
A medical examination found the injuries caused to the child to be grievous harm.
Vasquez does not have an attorney, but can apply for bail from the Supreme Court if he gets legal assistance.
He returns to court on May thirtieth, 2019.
