According to the family, they were in the mall for buying a school bag for the child, while waiting outside Pep shop after paying, the guy grabbed their daughter’s bottom and walked away. “We were standing out side Pep after paying for the bag, he grabbed my daughters bottom and passed to go to Pick’n pay for his shopping, My husband asked my daughter if she knew him and what he did to her because we didn’t see that he grabbed her bottom we just saw a hand and thought that he just poked her and my daughter said he grabbed her bottom”, said Sarah Sithole, the mother. The father added that he thought it was a teacher from school who just poked her and he followed him to the shop to check if the man was mentally disturbed or not and found out that he was paying for his food at the till. He then approached the Securities and CPF’s for help. The securities were including, France Pitseng, Judy Chauke and James Khoza with two female CPF’S Francina Mashitisho and Dikeledi Sibaya. “we were called by the father to address the matter of sexual assault, we caught the guy at Pick’npay paying for his food, when we asked him at first he denied he had done it and wanted to escape in our hands. He also didn’t want us to hand cuff him but we managed and took him to the station for Mams FM to know and broadcast about it”, said Judy Chauke , one of the securities. The securities called Mamelodi East police for arrest. The man said he was in shock when he was caught, he never thought it will go as far as he claims to be playing with the unknown child. He asked for forgiveness to the parent before the police took him away. The matter remains the subject to the police.
