Men accused of indecent assault

Two men accused of indecently assaulting minors were charged in court on Monday.

Prosecutors allege that a 53-year-old man of southwestern New Providence indecently assaulted his eight-year-old daughter at their home.

The man, whose name has been withheld to protect the minor’s identity, was not required to enter a plea to the charge when he appeared before Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux.

She remanded him to the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre for an evaluation at the request of his lawyer, Ian Cargill.

According to Cargill, the man exhibited bizarre behavior while detained at a police station by taking off his clothing and punching a hole in the wall.

The man returns to court on July 15 for an update.

Meanwhile, a 20-year-old man appeared in the same court accused of the assault of a 13-year-old boy.

Prosecutors allege that Keithron Wells put his hand in the child’s pants and touched his genitals and butt.

Wells was not required to enter a plea to the charge and was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.

The matter was adjourned to September 29 for the presentation of a voluntary bill of indictment.

Wells will remain in custody unless his lawyer, Nathan Smith, gets him bail in the Supreme Court.

Sergeant 3004 Sherquel Forbes was the prosecutor.
