Tonight, a pervert is on the loose. A 9-year-old girl is traumatized after she was verbally harassed on a community bus on Friday evening and her father is behind bars for defending her honor. Whilst on the bus she was sitting beside one of her neighbors who kept slipping rude remarks her way, telling her she is sexy among other statements. The child went home and informed her parents. Love News spoke to the mother this evening who is upset that her child was harassed, and her husband is detained by police.
Mother: “And it was within that time from the Lord’s Bank Junction to our lane here at home here she met the men on the bus and one of them men she said was looking at her funny she said and then he started to pass comments and telling her that she looked very sexy. My daughter is nine years old, nine and then the other thing is there was a man right next to him, one of his relatives and he was there telling him ‘Man, that’s a little girl why don’t you leave her alone.’ and the man still continued with the behavior. So far I am being honest to me the police are not moving as they should on a case like this, especially when children are involved.”
Since then, her father approached the brother of the predator who was also present on the bus to verify the allegations of his daughter. According to the mother of the child, the brother got defensive when he was being questioned regarding the incident. Love News understands that an altercation ensued between the men and the father is currently detained at the Ladyville Police Station.
Mother: “I received a phone call at work from my husband saying that they were taking him to the police station so I went to query as to why they had detained him. The police explained to me that they detained him because the other young man had came in and made a report that he had an altercation with him. If there is any truth to that story I’m not sure because I spoke to my husband only briefly about the altercation. I can speak about what I do know and that my husband’s intention was to find out what transpired on the bus on Friday that led to the man harassing my daughter with sexual words. My husband said when he was trying to question him about it the guy got all defensive. I mean why would you get defensive if someone comes to you trying to find out what transpired. And the person that they’re saying went through altercation with wasn’t even the guy passing the comments, as I understand it was his brother or something like that so I guess they’re covering up for each other.”
The Predator is still being sought by Police. Love News will have more on this story as it develops.
