A father who is accused of sexually assaulting his daughter and seven of her friends will spend the next three weeks in jail after his case was postponed.
The 49-year-old, who was busted when one of his alleged victims piemped him on Wednesday night, made his first appearance in the Mitchells Plain Magistrates’ Court yesterday on charges of sexual assault.
The matter was postponed for a bail hearing.
The 13-year-old told her mom that the man had masturbated in front of her and her friends, aged nine to 14, including his own 16-year-old daughter.
And that last Monday and Wednesday he touched her on the shoulders like he was trying to massage her and then he tried to place his penis against her bum.
The girl’s mother informed her friend, who is the aunt of another victim.
The 43-year-old woman told the Daily Voice that her 10-year-old niece didn’t talk about the incident until she confronted her.
“I was shocked when I heard about this and we also went to the suspect trying to find out why he would do such a thing to our children,” she says.
“We trusted him and if that girl had not informed us, he would have raped them.
“I had told my niece to never go back to that house again but she would sneak out to see her friend, that man’s daughter.”
She said that the girls were threatened by the suspect.
“The man told them he would hurt them if they told us anything. I guess my friend’s child could not take it any longer and decided to come to us and tell us.
“He wasn’t buying them anything because he had nothing to offer. body.copy.bold: “All his victims don’t have father figures so he took advantage and played the role of their father, he used to piggyback them from a young age.”
