Troubling sex act captured on video

A troubling sex video circulating on social media is attracting the attention of police and the ire of Barbadians.

The 29-second clip shows a young male, believed to be in his early teens, engaging in fellatio with a much older man.

Public Relations Officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler told Barbados TODAY he had not seen the video, but stressed that any social media posts that “involved some level of criminal connotations” would be investigated.

“We’ve said over and over again that things like this should not be circulated and, we have also explained that under the Computer Misuse Act there are certain materials that once you send over any form of social media, and you go and you engage and forward it, you are committing an offence, and we have asked persons to desist from that sort of activity.

“We have also made an appeal to anyone that has any type of information that could assist us with our investigations into any of these types of social media posts to come forward and provide some information for us to act on,” Cobbler said.

The video has been the source of outrage, with one person in a voice note circulating on WhatsApp decrying the act, while admonishing men for taking advantage of young boys.

“You see some of these men, these men does know . . . what happen to the lil boys. The lil boys does want nuff . . . brand name clothes and ting, right? And the big hardback men going encourage them too . . . they does be giving them the money and carrying them shopping and ting.”

In another note, the sender chronicled a similar story, describing how another young boy was “turned”.

“They got a lil boy bout here by me that [get] brek in like tha’ dey. A man that does work in town he do that to the boy. When the boy used to come up there he used to give the boy expensive clothes, big phone and ting and he [expletive] the boy. If you see how the boy does walk now? They does call he bad yams,” it said.

Efforts to reach the Child Care Board were unsuccessful up to the time of publication.

    Inspector Cobbler really expects someone to report the matter to the police? Anyone ever tried giving a report to the police? Try Oistins! Biggest mistake. District A worst mistake in life!! Especially if you butt up on that big, unmannerly constable seen with the lollipop in his mouth while on duty and holding an accused person on remand.

    Police are never receptive to information. One has to give that information to a detective. They are the only ones who listen

    This is wrong and a criminal act indeed. The perpetrators of such crimes should be brought to justice if only we would return to being our brother’s keeper. Today sadly we have become our brother’s killer.

    I have taken special notice of the comment here on whatsApp about the behavior of ‘big hard back men’ with little boys. While this is true, what about the behavior of the ‘big hard back women with little girls’? We have to approach every issue affecting our nation with gender equality in mind, otherwise we’ll always miss the mark.

    This preying on young persons by older men and women was going on for decades now, the arrival of social media has exposed this antisocial behavior. So we believe this has just begun, because of the economic times. No, these things has been happening from the seventies to my recollection and has nothing to do with economic times, it’s about children being without proper care within the home, being vulnerable to the evil forces in public.

    well, word through the grape vine is that he is 16, which by the way is the legal age of consent. If certain laws are repealed, are we to expect more of this behavior?

    Inspector I would believe that your priority is to find this man and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law and all others like him…

    You have to be honest with yourself inspector, you can’t cuss the masses when you use forums such as social media to conduct your investigations and cuss them when they share it…

    Someone need to make a jail…

    I glad to know that its not a 12 or 13 year old child, although this 16 year have no right to be doing such horrible acts because everyone will know who you are and everywhere you go people will be calling you names. How are you going to get a job in small barbados. They courts should lock up all these grown men who encourage young boys and girls is this horrible behavior
