Police officer charged for raping 15-year-old boy

A 15-year-old has accused a police constable of raping him inside the Punta Gorda Police Station.  It is a disturbing story, and is made even more outrageous that the cop allegedly performed the act inside the Domestic Violence Unit.  Police have since arrested and charged 29-year-old, Marcus Che for carrying out an unnatural crime.  Police Commissioner Chester Williams spoke on the matter today saying that he is disgusted at the situation, and is hoping that the incident will not cause the town’s residents lose faith in the Police.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I must say that when I was briefed of that matter yesterday I was extremely disgusted of what transpired and more so inside the police station. From what I was briefed is that Police Constable Marcus Che who was assigned to the Domestic Violence Unit in Punta Gorda Town invited a young man of fifteen years old to his office and his office is located on the upper flat of the Punta Gorda Town Police Station and in his office he performed anal sex with the fifteen year old. The fifteen year old and his father reported the matter to the police and Marcus Che has since been arrested and charged for unnatural crime and he has since been interdicted from duty. He appeared before the court in Punta Gorda Town today and he has been remanded to prison until the 16th of June this year. Well I think it certainly threw a monkey wrench into the work that we had been doing to try and restore trust and confidence. It is going to take a very long time to restore that confidence for parents to want to send their children to the police station in Punta Gorda Town. But I want to assure the parents and the people of Punta Gorda Town that we are going to be doing all we can to make sure that this police officer is  brought to justice and that there is no recurrence of this issue. I’m sure the public are going to be forgiving in terms of what transpired to know that we have a huge organization to run and as much as we will try we’ll never be able to control what each and every member of our department does. But what we can control is what we do in the aftermath of them committing themselves and I think that we have had a very good track record in dealing with our own when they step out of line.”

Love News understands that the father of the minor became aware of the incident when he saw a hicky on the boy’s body.  He subsequently accompanied his son to the station to file the complaint.  According to Commissioner Williams, the police will be sparing no effort to see that Che is brought to justice.
