A 72-year-old retired police officer has been apprehended for allegedly defiling his six-year-old granddaughter.
Chief Inspector Samuel Larbie (Rtd) was reportedly picked up by police from the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) unit at Kasoa at about 5:30 pm on Wednesday, June 9.
The police report suggests the police officer had sexual intercourse with the victim on several occasions.
Additionally, he was fond of inserting his fingers in the genitals of the innocent girl.
The victim is an orphan who stayed with the suspect and his wife at Kasoa Ofaakor. The man, however, took advantage of the girl after his wife passed away. The victim is said to have developed unconscious incontinence, a situation where she passes urine unprepared.
“We found out the girl’s private part was expanding when we took her to the hospital after she reported ill, so we interrogated her, and she told us her grandfather had been having sex with her.
The worst part is that she told us he also inserts his fingers in her private parts anytime he had sex with her. Now, she sees blood oozing from her vagina anytime she urinates,” the complainant known as Obaa Yaa told Kasapa FM after reporting to the police.
The retired police officer is said to have previously defiled and abused the victim’s elder sister, who was 12 years at the time.
Mr Larbie is currently in police custody, assisting with the investigation while the victim receives treatment at Ofaakor Polyclinic.
