POLICE are searching for the mother of a 13-year-old girl after she poured hot oil over the body of a man while he was in the process of raping her daughter. The incident took place over the Christmas weekend .
Investigators said, when the woman arrived at her San Juan home, she heard her daughter's muffled screams coming from one of the bedrooms. When she looked into the room, she reportedly saw the 27-year-old man on top of the girl carrying out the act.
Unknown to him and the girl, the woman, police said, went to her kitchen where she placed a pot with oil on the stove to heat. After some time, she reportedly took the pot and its contents and went to the bedroom where she confronted the man before pouring the oil over his body.
Police said the man began to scream and ran out of the house and into the street naked. He later went to a hospital to receive treatment, but eventually discharged himself.
The man surrendered to police of the San Juan Police Station last Wednesday but up to yesterday he had not been charged with the offence.
Investigators said the man suffered severe burns to his face and other parts of his body and had to be taken back to the Port of Spain General Hospital for treatment.
