    On July 1st 2019, the accused allegedly propositioned a neighbour, offering him $100 to perform a sex act.

    When the neighbour refused and tried to walk away, the man allegedly held onto the victim’s hand and told him he was not allowed to leave.

    The victim was then allegedly held against his will in a locked room, where the sex act occurred.

    The accused appeared today before Chaguanas Magistrate Indira Misir-Gosine, who also ordered him to stay 300 meters from the victim.

    He is expected to reappear before the court on March 29th.
