According to a release from the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, the incident took place sometime last year but the video recently surfaced on social media. Police say they have since collected statements from the child as well as the person who recorded the video.

The police say the child's mother remains in custody and the matter is being investigated by the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse as well as the Child Development Agency.
