San Pedro police have arrested and charged one of their own with three counts of ‘sexual assault’ in connection with a report by a 13 year-old girl.
The charges against Kyle Hubert Serrano, 26, a police constable, followed the report that he assaulted the girl on three occasions between November 27th and December third.
Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser denied Serrano bail based on arguments from the court prosecutor that Serrano might want to intimidate the girl.
Serrano was not charged until three weekes after the report was made because police had to secure further information from the girl in order to have sufficient grounds to bring about the charges against him.
Serrano is remanded to the Hattieville Prison until January 26, 2016.
