KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Two police constables in Jamaica have been arrested on allegations of having sex with an underage girl.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force has refused to disclose specifics of the accusations against the two officers from the St. Catherine north police division in southern Jamaica.

But the Jamaica Gleaner newspaper says a 15-year-old girl told a relative that the two constables had sex with her. The age of consent in Jamaica is 16.

A branch of the police that deals with sexual offenses and child abuse is investigating the allegations.
