Child sex video linked to Trinidad, suspect severely beaten

A video circulating on social media depicting a young girl being made to perform a sexual act on a man is believed to have been recorded in Trinidad & Tobago.

A woman made a report to police in the north western Trinidad town of Diego Martin indicating that it was her granddaughter in the recording. 

The woman told police that her family only became aware when neighbours brought the video to their attention. 

When the neighbours realised who the suspect was, they reportedly severely beat the man in an attempt to restrain him for police. However, during the confrontation, the man escaped.

Detectives in the twin island republic are reportedly searching for the man for questioning while continuing investigations into the case.

Jamaican police also launched their own investigations into the origin of the video after the footage began circulating among locals in that country.
