Tema, May 12, GNA- A 30-year old bathhouse attendant in Tema has been remanded in prison custody by a Tema Circuit Court "B" for allegedly defiling a five-year old girl.

Chief Inspector Edith Nutakor told the court that on May 6, this year, at about 1600 hours, the victim with her father went to Chidi's bathhouse to have their bath but the father went inside to shower while he left the victim with Chidi to bathe her for him.

The father then peeped through the window of Chidi's kiosk and found him inside in his kiosk with the victim.

Meanwhile the presiding Judge, Mr Stephen Teye has asked the Prosecutor to present victims father in court to explain why he should leave his five-year old girl in the hands of a man to bathe her.
