Two women were recently charged with gross sexual assault after being accused of inserting a bottle inside a teenager’s private area two years ago.
The two women will stand trial in the St Catherine Circuit Court in September this year.
The matter was decided in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court recently after Resident Magistrate Llyle Armstrong ruled that a prima facie case has been made out against the women.
It is alleged that in 2015, the two accused lured the 16-year-old complainant to a house in Linstead, St Catherine. They then held her down and used a bottle to sexually assault her.
The complainant had to seek medical attention.
A subsequent report was made to the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse.
Both women were later charged with gross sexual assault.
