Nassau, Bahamas – Bahamas Press has learnt former convict for rape, Andrew Bridgewater, was arrested yesterday by police after a distress call alerted authorities that the convict had attempted to assault and rape another victim.
Readers would remember Bridgewater was recently released from jail, where he was convicted for molesting a 6-year-old girl and left her to die. BP is calling for a sexual offenders register to be implemented to list all convicts for crimes against children.
Bridgewater pleaded guilty on December 13, 2006 to having unlawful sexual intercourse with the girl after she was found coming from bushes behind the Blue Hill Road power plant.
She was clothed only in a blood stained T-shirt, according to police.
The child’s doctor’s report revealed that she suffered from a laceration to the labia, bleeding in the vaginal wall, swelling to the forehead, a haematoma to her cheek and vaginal laceration with second and third degree tears from her vagina to her rectum.
The girl had to be hospitalized for two to three weeks as a result of the sexual assault, according to authorities.
Readers should note Bridgewater was release from jail one week before the death of young Marco Archer.
