Fishtown, Liberia, July 10, 2024 – Fishtown, River Gee County – Police in Fishtown City, River Gee County, have incarcerated two suspects, identified as Paul Daddy, age 30, and 17-year-old Eric Juwah, for allegedly raping two minors in the county.

The suspects are both residents of Gbeapo Joquiken, River Gee, but were apprehended by the Liberia National Police on July 4, 2024, for allegedly raping twelve and eight year’s old minors.

Narrating the ordeal to the head of the children protection section of the Liberian National Police, one of the minors said she and her friend Vicky went to fetch water at a pump around 9:00 pm when Suspect Paul Daddy called them to watch a video on his phone.

“So my friend and I went in, but I never knew Suspect Paul Daddy had such a plan and convinced me in his room and had sexual intercourse with me while my friend was still watching a video on the porch”, she alleged.

The minor further explained that after the act, Suspect Daddy gave her 400 Liberia dollars and asked her not to tell anyone.

But when the two got home, her friend informed the victim’s mother, and the mom immediately reported the incident to the Liberian National Police in River Gee.

The minor was quickly rushed to the Fishtown Referral Hospital for medical examination. Workers at the health facility established that the minor was sexually tampered with.

Following the report, Suspect Paul was arrested by the Liberia National Police. He admitted to the act during the police preliminary investigation and pleaded for forgiveness.

At the same time,  Suspect Eric Juwah, who’s a 10th-grade student of  Gbeapo Multilateral High School in Kanweaken City, River Gee County, was also arrested for allegedly raping an eight (8) years old minor.

According to the mother of the minor, she observed strangely her daughter messing herself up with toilet and urine regularly in a weak condition, so when she confronted her, the minor explained that Suspect Eric Juwah allegedly had sex with her both in her anus and virgin.

The mother explained during the police preliminary investigation that her daughter had earlier informed her that the suspect came from school, met the victim home, took her into the room, and allegedly had sex with her that subsequently caused her to bleed.

But Suspect denied the allegation. Both suspects have been placed behind bars in River Gee for statutory rape, awaiting court trial. Editing by Jonathan Browne
