A 47-year-old man was remanded in custody yesterday after being accused of attempting to sexually abuse an 18-year-old girl in New Providence last week. 

Magistrate Kendra Kelly charged Dwayne Smith with attempted rape. 

Smith is accused of trying  to have sexual intercourse with a teenage girl without her consent between January 21 and 22.

The accused was told that his matter would be transferred to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI). He will be sent to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until the higher court grants him bail.

Smith’s VBI is due for service on April 17.
