He is ex­pect­ed to reap­pear be­fore the court on Oc­to­ber 20.

Po­lice said the man was ar­rest­ed fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Child Pro­tec­tion Unit (CPU) of­fi­cers in­to a re­port of a miss­ing girl.

Act­ing Cpl Davis-Guer­ra, of the West­ern Di­vi­sion CPU, con­duct­ed fur­ther en­quiries in­to the re­port and lat­er found the girl in San­ta Cruz.

The girl re­port­ed­ly told po­lice that she had sex­u­al in­ter­course with a man.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion, spear­head­ed by W/Su­per­in­ten­dent Claire Guy-Al­leyne and di­rect­ly su­per­vised by W/Sgt Sim­mons and Sgt (Ag) James, re­sult­ed in the ar­rest of the man.

He was sub­se­quent­ly charged with one count of sex­u­al pen­e­tra­tion of a child.

Po­lice said the girl has since been re­unit­ed with her par­ents.
