A Grassy Park oupa will spend the weekend in the mang after he was busted by police for allegedly sexually assaulting his granddaughter and asking the young meisie for kaalg*t pictures.
Grassy Park Police Station commander Colonel Dawood Laing says officers were called to Louw Road on Thursday morning where the 14-year-old girl’s distraught mom told them the man intended to rape her daughter.
“The officers were approached by the mother who said she was having problems with the child’s oupa who had been harassing her daughter sexually and feared she would be raped,” says Laing.
“She explained that the 54-year-old man had fetched the 14-year-old girl from school previously without the mother’s permission and had touched her inappropriately.”
Laing says the teen told cops that her oupa had sent her text messages on Thursday morning in which he asked her to go to the bathroom and take nude selfies for him.
“The girl refused and never sent him the pictures and then he just arrived at the teen’s home and told the young girl: ‘Your vagina belongs to me’.
“In addition he claimed he was ‘coming for the girl’ and we can only assume what he meant.”
Cops raced to the Grassy Park home of the suspect and arrested him on sexual assault charges.
“He will remain in custody until his appearance at Wynberg Magistrates’ Court on Monday, but we are continuing our investigation to establish if there are any other victims,” adds Laing.
“We have confiscated his cellphone and computer to see whether there is any pornography or other girls he has tried to coax.”
Laing says parents must be wakker and keep track of who their children are texting and the nature of the conversations.
“This includes relatives because often in cases like this, when the men are relatives the young girls are scared to say anything.
“But I want to say to them that if any man is asking them for kaal pictures and they are scared to tell their family, they must come tell me and I will sort him out.”
