Sylvester, who was employed to guard a private apartment on Teslim Elias Close, was arrested on Monday by the Victoria Island Police Division for allegedly sucking the bre*st of the victim, who is also his employer’s daughter.
A police source said that the suspect also inserted his finger into the private parts of the 10-year-old, before the employer caught him.
He told Punch that, “The incident happened at about 11.30pm on Saturday. The guard allegedly lured the girl to a secluded spot in the house and sucked her bre*st. He also dipped his left finger into her private parts. He has confessed to the crime.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed Sylvester’s arrest.
She said, “The matter was reported and the suspect has been arrested. The victim has been taken for a medical examination. The Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has directed that the case be transferred to the gender unit at the state command headquarters for further investigation.”
