Police investigating suspected sexual assault on nine-year-old girl

A 77-year-old grandfather has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting his nine-year-old granddaughter. Her 13-year-old brother is also suspected of sexually assaulting the girl.

The grandfather, 77 was arrested on Thursday after police received the report through the social welfare office, which in turn had been notified by the girl’s school in Nicosia.

Her brother, 13 is being monitored by welfare, according to reports, which said that an examination by a state pathologist found the girl’s hymen had been ruptured and she had injuries consistent with sexual assault.

Police are not revealing more details so that the identity of the little girl can be protected.
