Girl Punches, Runs Away From Sex Offender

January 28, 2013

47-year-old Dwayne David Beach this morning [Jan 28] pleaded guilty to the sexual assault of a 16 year old schoolgirl, with the Court hearing the teenager managed to run away after punching the man — who was on probation for another sex offence when this incident occurred.

The Court heard the incident happened in Devonshire earlier this month, and involved the man grabbing the teenage girl and forcing a kiss on her while attempting to fondle her. She broke free, punched him and ran away, making her way home.

She then told her mother, who called the police. Beach was arrested, identified by the teenager, and then admitted the offence.

Beach has prior convictions of this nature having been convicted of sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl in 2010. He was released from this sentence in Dec. 2011 and was still on probation.

Magistrate Warner remanded him into custody and sent the matter to Supreme Court for sentencing saying that, in his view, the five year maximum was insufficient to deal with Beach – whom the Magistrate described as a “predator.”

    If the Magistrate can describe him as a " predator", HOW THE HELL WOULD THEY RELEASE HIM?

    The court system is a joke in this country - - there needs to be serious consequences for offenders of abuse/assault of a sexual nature - period.

      Yng Black Mind, please tell the reading public were you got the notion that the Magistrate set this person free, cause as I read the article it stated that he was remanded into custody.

        @The Dark Knight 2:

        The "they" that I am referring to is the court system, not the Magistrate in the current case. As stated in the article,

        "Beach has prior convictions of this nature having been convicted of sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl in 2010. He was released from this sentence in Dec. 2011 and was still on probation."

        They - the probation board, i.e. the system of law, released him back into the community for him to commit this new offense.

        Point made.

          Yng Black Mind, to clarify, he had completed his custodial sentence and was in his probation stage which was imposed during the initial sentencing. He is monitored by a Probation Officer. When I say monitored it does not mean that someone is with him 24/7 but he must report on a regular basis and he would have been followed up with while in the community. There is no probation board. I think you might be confused with the Parole Board.

      I agree with you . The police lock them up, and the courts seem to let them walk with suspended sentances or give them minimal sentencing!

      I pedophoile or rapist in jail can never harm another wjile in jail.

      Magistrates, start slamming down the hammer and sentance these rapists, pedophiles, drug pushers, killers and other scum buckets to some serius time.

    In 2010 he had a prior conviction of this nature. What the HELL was he doing out of prison!! As a young girl I was sexually assaulted. Like her I was able to get away from my attacker. But he went onto rape 2 other young girls who knows of the countless others. The scares I still carry 44 years later. These animals should never be let out.

    That SOB is known for trying to get at young girls. Glad the young girl struck him and told her mom. He needs to go to jail for along time and a big "S.O." (sex offender)tattooed on his forehead so all can see it. Lord help me if he tried to trouble my girls. I would not be on BERNEWS making a comment or it would read. "I am going to jail because I just beat and castrated a sex offender." Courts please make the right decision and lock him away.

    Whats funny is that when Beachy was released before, they had him taking drug tests up the yinyang every week. BUT, the reason he was convicted before was the fact that he was drunk with alchohol. Now this happens again, drunk on that liquid again. He should have bee nforced to stop drinking. Bet you he gets time again, but when he gets out he'll still be allowed to drink but will be tested for drungs again! Stupid is as stupid does.

    To the 14 year old girl. Thank you for being so brave to report the incident. I applaud you for coming forward and telling someone about it. This would help others to come forward instead on feeling ashamed and remaining silent.

    Hopefully a new Parole Board would not be letting perverts like Mr. Beach out of jail too soon. Again Bermudas Laws need to change. These perverts need to be in jail for longer sentences.

    Very proud of you, young lady, for fighting back and for reporting the attack!
    Every potentially vulnerable person would benefit from learning self-defense - children (both boys and girls), women and the elderly. At the very least, public awareness of simple things like the use of a full size umbrella thrust into the chest or stomach, or a walker plunked down on the instep, breath spray in the eyes, or keeping a shrill whistle around the neck and using it. Most predators seek what they consider to be easy victims. They don't want noise or a fight.

    @ Beachy: you are a fine advertisement for the Prison Sex Offenders Program...NOT! I don't think castration would work for you. Maybe a lobotomy...

      As far as a picture, please recall the new Court building makes it impossible to get a photo when someone is remanded as they are taken away inside the building.

      They never appear outside, and we can't take photos inside so our hands are tied.

      It's only if defendants get and make bail, or appear in Supreme can we get photos these days. He has been kicked to Supreme for sentencing, so we will stake out the Court that day and hopefully get a photo...

    This is the same man that used to follow me around everywhere when I was 14/15. I would see him walking home from the bustop after school...mornings outside the aquarium when I used to be a Junior volunteer...it's like he used to stalk me. He used to do work for my dad. He never got a chance to touch me though because I ended up telling my parents before it got that far. When my dad found out, he punched him in his face a couple of times. I'm 22 now and haven't seen him since. I'll always remember him as the ugly bug eyed man that used to follow me. He needs to be locked up away from young girls for good. :(

    It's ashame many of us aren't the judges that this lil rat would have to stand in front of, because sometimes, the people's justice is the better justice. Beach's justice would be sweet if a big 300lb man assaulted and raped him every day to remind him of what it feels like to treat these women and young girls the way he does/did. Because of this fool's action on this young girl, who knows, most likely she'll be scard for life. Let's pray that this time he gets what he deserves.

  40. Good to know she managed to escape and she's alright. We really can't tell when danger strikes us. This incident may happen to everyone and without even knowing, it will also happen in our own family. I am a mother, and I'm worried that I've been hearing a lot of the same news coming up about attempted rape cases. So I thought of searching a way, so I can protect my family. Luckily, my friend introduces me this mobile-based application, which is very interesting. An application which can be press silenced and has a direct routing to the nearest 911 stations with the exact location, so the 911 responders will be dispatched to where the incident occurs. Just click my name to know more about their service.
