A 33-year-old Jamaican man, accused of raping a 14-year-old girl, has been remanded to HMP Dodds.
Rayon Autorney McBean allegedly committed the act on October 12.
He was not required to plead to the indictable offence when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick this week.
Pointing out that the non-national had no significant ties to Barbados and had overstayed his welcome after he was granted a 21-day stay on arrival in February last year, Station Sergeant Neville Reid argued that McBean was a flight risk.
Reid also argued that the minor, who has mental challenges, must be protected from the accused man.
McBean will make his next appearance in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on November 13.
