Police to criminally charge teenager for making false kidnapping report

Deputy Police Chief Lincoln Corbette

Acting Deputy Police Chief, Lincoln Corbette has said that the police will be instituting criminal charges against 16 year-old Rianna Serrant after concluding their investigations into a report of alleged kidnapping made by her.

On Saturday March 9, 2019 Rianna Serrant sent a distress call to her twin sister in Pointe Michel stating that she was kidnapped and needed help.

“After receiving the report of alleged kidnapping, in furtherance of this report, the police conducted several operations including vehicle check points (VCP), foot patrols and searches and they all proved futile,” Corbette said.

He said that he was very disturbed when he read on social media that people had posted that the police was out conducting searches but given the situation of social media, they (the police) have no control of the matter.

“We want the people to work with us,” he said.

Corbette said that the police received a tip-off when someone from the community of Stock Farm saw the missing teenager.

“On Sunday March 10, 2019, the child was seen walking in the community of Stock Farm westward in the vicinity of Sign Man. The police was alerted and she was picked up thereafter, brought to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and then to the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) where she was medically examined and discharged,” he explained.

He continued, “I wish to reiterate, without any contradiction, that the report of kidnapping or abduction was a false report. The child was not abducted or kidnapped; she did not want to be found. The person she was with is with the police giving us a full detailed report of what transpired.  The child arranged everything way in advance down to the final detail. Every step that was given to the police including the distress call was prearranged by her.”

The deputy chief of police called the situation “unfortunate.”

“These reports are very unfortunate and waste the police time, instilling fear in the population of people being abducted. The child has given conflicting stories to the police; she has not spoken the truth. No abduction and or kidnapping, that is all false,” Corbette insisted.

He said the police force is small with minimal resources and such behavior is unacceptable.

“We are now in the process of instituting criminal charges against her. She is above 12 years and knows what she is doing, shouting wolf. We are very disturbed about that situation and we will institute criminal charges against her,” he confirmed.

In response to questions from the media about the child being “raped” he said that she was medically examined but she also preplanned’ the entire matter.

“I can’t confirm she was raped but I can confirm that given the discussions with the guy who picked her up, that she was not raped,” Corbette stated.

    A reading taken from the Book of… verses 1 -4 :

    1. And Jesus cam down from the skies to judge every living creature and the people of Dominica

    2. And he saw every living being and every creature that walked the land, and sayeth: “Why did you sin my child”

    3. Each living being and creature approached him for judgment, and responded: ” Roosevelt Skerritt, your appointed leader of Dominica said, “No law and no Constitution shall stop me”; and the Police Force was corrupt, passing judgment on only who they wilt Lord”

    4. And Jesus answered, “Verily I sayeth unto you, whosoever committed any sin during the rule of Roosevelt Skerrit is found without fault and has sinneth not. Go Ye forth my children for Ye shall inherit the kingdom of heaven, with the exception of Roosevelt Skerritt and his cabal. Go Ye forth my children of Dominica, for Ye sinned not of thy own fault or will but by fault of the utterances and deeds of of Roosevelt Skerrit and the corrupt Police Force”

    Very well Dominicans.

    Assuming that most of you are not atheists.

    When Jesus returns and he asks “why did you sin”; you will answer “Skerritt said no law no constitution can stop me”.

    And Jesus will answer, “Verily I say unto you, whosoever commitedeth a sin during the rule of Roosevelt Skerritt in Dominica hath sinneth not and is found to be without fault. Go Ye forth my children of Dominica for Ye shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, with the exception if Roosevelt Skerritt and his cabal. Go Ye forth children, heaven is thine”.

    Guys, Let us be real here. The young lady, with all her senses, manipulated a situation to have a way. The evidence was clear from the beginning that the story was sketchy. Her story had an entire country mentally and emotionally fragile, not only for her safety but for their own. Even after she was caught, she’s still trying to manipulate the story in her favour and to add insult to injury, she is using her family and in addition, media platforms to push her story. I think the family is doing so though because
    1. They truly believe her.
    2. To save face
    3. The fear of paying the charges have caused them to stand next to their loved ones.
    I feel bad for everyone involved in this because of one very manipulative child. This is not a cry for help but the patterns of a narcissist. She SHOULD be punished, not only for her actions but to curb these trends of these young women.

    I dont know the child but Corbette if later I hear this child commited suicide i blame u.
    And I personally coming to deal with u. U are senseless. Until it reach home u will understand. Children go through a lot. No need to charge. The exposure alone is enough torture for her. Now u sending her to take man for money to pay the state. She ain’t working. Or her poor parents who were worried that will pay. So u not making sense at all. Who for u to charge u not charging. Smh

    If the police were not out looking for this child, what else could they be doing? Playing dominoes, or chasing women?
    I am not saying what she did is right, but at least the police got work to do. They earned some of their pay.
    Before any charges, if at all, should be brought against her, there should be a complete and thorough investigation.

    i think that the age for consent needs to be changed………just because de girl is 16 I THINK that the police acting like this case should be dismissed because she is of the age of consent……..but this is foolishness even elderly people get interfered with and sexually abused (raped)

    So you mean EVERY TIME we hear about such a case in de public IT IS ALWAYS DE GIRL FAULT EH?

    I THOUGHT DE POLICE WAS THERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT: de criminals in stock farm prison well protected eating proper food……nobody abusing them eh.

    we have young women outside there who are a constant target while policemen in authority out there can’t and won’t protect de young women……..people does look out for and protect criminals instead eh

    this is d wrong message we sending out to the young people…….this thing keep rearing it’s head and we keep sweeping it under de carpet because it is ALWAYS DE GIRL FAULT!!!

    These are the seeds we sowing for de future eh??????

    The teenage stage of a human being’s life is the most turbulent time. Teenagers are usually untruthful disobedient, disrespectful and confrontational especially with their parents. This does not excuse the false alarm, if proven to be true, by the sixteen year old, but we should give some consideration to the age of the young lady before the harsh condemnation. I, personally, have done some regrettable things during my teenage years, luckily nothing unlawful. Having said that, it is reasonable for the police to be upset as valuable time and resources were wasted according to the assertions of the police. I wish the police could have been more professional and discrete in handling because it involves a fragile adolescent. Instead, the police have seen it fit to throw the young girl under the bus by airing specific opinions probably scarring her for life. We all err in life mostly just before attaining adulthood. Too many of us act as if we are infallible.

      Hear Hear Ibo France. I am not usually in agreement with some of your views. However, I totally agree with you on this matter. If it is true that this young girl has wasted police time and resources, then she should be admonished privately by her parents and the police. For the police to publicly scandalised a 16 year old girl like this, is to me reprehensible. Why has the police been so quiet and not acted
      accordingly with regards to the criminal activity against the minor that is still unresolved.
      So those with money and social position can get away with whatever, but the police feel proud
      to throw the book at a 16 year old. Bon Dieu paka dormir.

    “I can’t confirm she was raped but I can confirm that given the discussions with the guy who picked her up, that she was not raped,” Corbette stated.

    I hope DNO get the quote correct for the statement of the Acting Deputy Commissioner shows he contradicts himself. He says he can’t confirm the child was raped but then immediately says he can confirm she was not raped. Listening to the press conference he held yesterday, it is clear that his communications skills are very poor. He can’t articulate and speak in a coherent manner. I recommend that people who are promoted to senior managerial position and have little or no experience in communicating with the press and the rest of the public get training in public speaking.

    • March 12, 2019

      While one can’t describe the acting deputy commissioner as being articulate he should be given credit for his efforts. The acting deputy commissioner states ” I can’t confirm she was raped but I can confirm that given the discussions with the guy who picked her up she was not rape” As a senior police officer this statement is confusing and inappropriate. The acting deputy commissioner should know that even in instances where there was initial consent, an individual can withdraw his/her consent during the act and any further action from that point could constitute a crime.

    March 12, 2019

    I think the police should just give the child a serious warning and leave her alone. Nobody was hurt except she and her family and I believe that is enough punishment for her. When the report was first made I understood that the police officer said he did not have time for that so now she is found alive and well, why are you all wasting time investigating and charging her. Find her a counselor and let this be. Go solve all the real crimes in the country.

    You all are turning this into a political matter? Here we have a teenage girl facing criminal charges because through ignorance she thought she had the perfect plan for a weekend rendezvous that backfired. She has to go back to school, her family, her community and face all this social melee. Her family has their share of shame and dissappointment to face, but instead of thinking of them and how they will cope. we think first of which political party can score points with this one. You all really need to remove the blue and red veils that are covering your eyes and see people as people and not political issues.

  34. Just my opinion
    March 12, 2019

    People stop being ignorant. Everything does not have to be about politics. You are missing the main issues. Her family was subjected to unnecessary stress . Resources that could be used elsewhere were wasted, and she put the police and public in a situation to not take these events seriously , by second guessing if the event really happened. As a result someone could really lost their life, because help was not mobilized quick enough.

    She has put herself in destructive mode. she will become a target for various purposes. Women after women makes this same mistakes, in this case she is 16, therefore she can the guy might walk free if at all he had sexual connections with her.

    Dr. Dr. Roosevelt Sherri a grown adult made a false report in 2017 that the opposition tried to stage a coup using a truck with hifi, the police responded by conducting several raises and arresting and interrogating many opposition activist. We later found out that Dr. Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit made those claims to divert attention from the Monfahred issue, to date the police have not brought any criminal charges against Dr. Dr. Skerrit. But they are now quick to press for criminal charges against this poor misguided youth who cannot even vote as yet. It baffles me that police resources are an issue because the police seem to have unlimited resources when dealing with the shenanigans of the misgovernment.

    If the report from the father regarding the response from the police when he first reported can be proven, then that officer should not only be fired, but should face dereliction of duty and other charges, and he also should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    After Skerrit’s confidential IPO information was given out, the same police went to patriot Linton’s home,looking for it. Then it was found that Tony was the one who licked it out ..To date, i have not heard of any charges against Tony for public mischief or any other thing .
    That madness need to stop. Linton is Dominican too!! He was born and raised in Dominica,among Dominicans.He is a Dominican.
    We can’t have a police force making it appear that one Dominican is so hated by so many within the force. Why?Why?Why?
    Those who teargassed the protesters must answer questions too!!It was a dastardly act! Those doggone wicked, evil,bad minded idiots must be charged too!!

    I must chide Matt Peltier too for giving so much attention to this without knowing the facts. Matt is supposed to be an investigative journalist and should not stir things like this while the police are doing their work. He has become so parochial and inward looking in his reporting. Pure laziness. Yesterday was Commonwealth day but not a word about that, not even from government. Of course, Matt can report what he wants but since his comments are heard all over the word he should exercise caution and be prepared to be judged and criticised too.

    So, over and over this guy Corbette keep referring to her as a child. 

    If indeed she is 16 years old, that categorized her as a minor!

    That means she is not an adult, how can you decide to criminally charge one less than 18 years old still a child  with a crime simply because she might left home for obvious reasons?

    When something like that happens, it is the duty of the police investigate the parents also.There must be a reason why this child did not want to be found: The question here is in who’s company was she found?Was it an adult?

    If so, could it be that she was influenced by the adult to runaway from home for some reason.

    The child could have some psychological issues: rather than charging and prosecuting a child, one should look into her mental health to see if she need some psychological, or psychiatric therapy, rather than traumatizing her by prosecuting here criminally!

      Francisco, this child does not have psychological issues; she had sex on her brains; she was steaming hot to trot but in the process wasted our resources.

        Nevertheless, even if she had sex on her mind, that is not a reason to prosecute her as a criminal she is still a child okay! 

        In any event, her offense is a simple misdemeanor, if found guilty the magistrate  give her probation as a first time offender; what’s there to gain in the process.

        It Corbette intention is to set an example; he should start from the top; his priority should be to prosecute the head of the country.

        The very corrupt Roosevelt Skerrit who lie  everyday; even to police causing them to spend resources in man power, and money perusing the innocent members of the opposition arresting them for crimes which Roosevelt manufactured!

        I suppose he is acting chief, or commissioner, so he is truing to impress Roosevelt he is better than Carbon, and should be confirm in the position!

        He is nothing more than a shallow tin idol craving attention!

    What I am Reading is a children needing hele. There is a family situation which needs to be investigated. No children Will plan to run away and not be foundation If the environment he or she is in is conducive.
    To many of US patents get caught up in our work, Church or ourselves that We forget that our children need US. Its not about giving Them phones,and clothes only but showing love and being there. Spending time with our kids is far better tHan having it all.

        This is exactly what happens to you when you absorb too much of the DLP’s propaganda, you become brain dead. How is it no one has been charged for such a serious offence? Why do people like you allow yourselves to be so easily brainwashed? To believe the PM’s false assertion about a coup attempt by the opposition is to believe elephants can fly.

      That’s why the concerned members of the public must expose the selective justice metted out to the citizens of the country, and the unprofessionalism of this failed police force…
      This police force seem to be the case worse in the region !
      Their prime target seem to be opposition parliamentarians.

      Thoughtful questions! Not fully excusing the harm that was done by the impressionable adolescent but Skerrit perpetrated the most dangerous lie/crime which could have led to complete anarchy and loss of lives in the country. It cannot be fair for Doctor² Skerrit to go unpunished while a naïve teenager is dragged over hot, red coals by the police. That specific lie about the coup d’état is one of the main reasons that the devious double Doctor has permanently loss credibility with me.
      The people and the Police Force will always be at loggerheads because of their partiality in carrying out their duties.

    So the callers of matt what all you have to say now??? Dont you think the dr gave mr corbette the findings. We must stop putting politics in everything all you talking about the head lying okay but that not the issue at hand right now. When they make an example out of her these young girls will stop running away but that one went a little too far. Others going and take their D and dno posting she was found and story die but that one and her sister make it grand.

    Corbette, if this young girl is to be charged criminally for making false statements, are criminal charges also going to brought against Tony Astaphans for making false statements against Hon. Lennox Linton which caused the police to waste time and resources in unlawfully ransacking his home, causing stress and emotional distress on his entire household? If wrong is wrong, criminal charges should not be for one set alone!! Why is the poor man’s child being penalised instead of counselled, while the ” bourgeois” gets away scot free?

      But, you see that is how ignorant and ridiculous they are in Dominica?

      With all the corruption in the country, thievery in high places in broad daylight, this clown will not investigate, and apprehend the culprits stealing Dominica blind, living above their paid income.

      He would rather prosecute a child and let the corrupted culprits to roam free!

      A child don’t simply go to bed one night, wakes up in the morning and simple decide to walk out the door with intentions  not to  return home!

      The child may have some deep psychological issues, rather than trying to find out if something is wrong with her mentally, he sits there playing tin idol policeman talking crap!

      In any event children at such age tends to rebel also; if that’s the case as you said  counseling is the alternative, not criminal prosecution.

      Prosecuting her at 16 years old might cause her to grow up resentful, and turn her into a hardened criminal!

        what Skerrit Must Go has a very very strong point….. what he mentioned wasn’t even politics, it is the FACT that Skerrit and Tony did the exact same thing; wasting even more resources as their stupid investigation went on for over a week, only to be concluded Skerrit and Tony had lied and made up that wholeeeee story. Dominica strong, A LIE, IS A LIE, IS A LIE… you cannot want to crucify the young girl and DO NOT EVEN WANT TO MENTION WHAT SKERRIT AND TONY DID, calling it politics.

        what was their punishment for making false allegations and wasting resources????? NOT A THING…

      Which Bourgeois’ child did this kind of nonsense also? spare the rod and spoil the child, regardless of whose child. I an not a political party supporter but your comment has no basis. Lennox didnt say Tony kidnap him, these are chalk and cheese situations. Now in the case or Peter St. Jean and the people who said he had kidnapped them for stolen dasheen, if you had used that example! then you would have had 2 feet to stand on. Because that one was a perfect example of kidnapping & torture without recourse or due justice. In the end, the man got a little house which they dubbed the Dasheen House in front of the the whole nation, ribbon cutting and all. The man even said if he had known he would have gotten a house after his turmoil, he would have let the minister beat him long ago, everyone laughed. It was on TV i was alarmed and amazed.
