An 8-year-old child is the latest victim of sexual assault after she reported that a man she knew well assaulted her using his finger to penetrate her private area.

Accused of the heinous crime upon the child is 39-year-old Moises Flores, a resident of Holy Emmanuel Street, Belize City. Flores, who was in police custody over the weekend, appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser on Monday, July 17, 2017. He was read a charge of sexual assault of a child by penetration. No plea was taken from Flores who was unrepresented.

The allegation made in a report by the minor in the presence of her mother is that sometime in May 2017, she was at a house when Flores came and sat down next to her. She was ordered to take off her underwear and he then inserted his finger into her private area. The child claims that she was threatened not to tell anyone.

Flores was denied bail and remanded into custody until September 25, 2017.
