The Child Care and Protection Agency is probing two suspected cases of sexual misconduct or rape involving two separate adults with two separate teenagers.
Guyana Daily News has been informed that in one instance, a stepmother was arrested by the police after she reportedly forced her 15 year old stepson to have sex with her.
The woman was picked up by the police on Wednesday last after the child reportedly told his mother about the incident. The father of the child is however not buying the story and is contending that the teenager’s mother might have put him to making the allegations since the parents are no longer sharing a relationship.
According to information out of Berbice, the woman and the child were reportedly home alone when she advanced to the child and forced him to perform sex with her.
If the allegations are found to be true, the woman could see herself being charged with sexual activity with a child while being in apposition of trust.
Meanwhile in another development, officials from the same Child Care and protection Agency were probing another development where a teenage student of a school in the region appeared to be pregnant.
Sources are contending that the child might have been involved with an adult male who impregnated her but she was unaware of her pregnancy until last week when she began feeling unwell.
In both instances, with the male and female teenagers, the police were called in and the children were also taken for medical examinations.
