Police are urging parents and guardians to be vigilant and not leave children unsupervised, after three girls were sexually assaulted in Phumlani Village last week.
Police said a witness had seen the man pull down his pants in front of the girls and fondle them.
Another witness had shouted at the man who had then fled.
Grassy Park acting station commander, Lieutenant Colonel Christian Esau, said children should not be left unsupervised. “With all these kidnappings happening, ensure the whereabouts of your children, make use of the Walking Bus method, ensuring the safety of our kids. Make use of the ‘secret code’ method if someone else fetches your child.
“Tell your children they must make a noise and run away, if they suspect someone wants to take them,” he said.
Report any suspicious activity to 10111 immediately or call police on 021 700 3940 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111. All information will be treated as highly confidential.
