A man whom police accuse of being a sexual predator is behind bars after having escaped from law enforcers, police have confirmed.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Wayne Charlery, told St Lucia Times that the suspect escaped from lawful custody on August 8, 2018.
Charlery disclosed that he was recaptured on November 5, 2018, charged and remanded in custody at Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF).
The suspect, whom law enforcement officials say had sexual intercourse with an underage female, is reported to have escaped when he was taken to the scene of the alleged offence in the South of the Island.
ACP Charlery commended police officers who worked tirelessly to recapture the suspect.
