Johannesburg - A Rustenburg man who targeted the young daughters of divorced mothers on social media to get nude photographs from them, has pleaded guilty to being in possession of child pornography, Beeld reported on Thursday.

Construction worker Anthony Louw hid under his lawyer's robes and was shielded by a friend to avoid being photographed by the media when he appeared in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court for sentencing on Wednesday.

Beeld reported that the sexually enticing or explicit images were of young girls, some clearly going through puberty. One girl was reportedly 12.

Using the names "Shivon", "Chivonne" or "Chevonne", he befriended divorced women and then their daughters on BBM and WhatsApp, police spokesperson Captain Elsabe Augoustides said.

He flattered them and the girls later sent him photos of themselves posing naked - some in front of the name signs of Rustenburg schools.

He was arrested after a tip-off.

Augoustides said anyone else who suspected they were victims of Louw, could contact Warrant Officer Thinus Else in Rustenburg.

Louw's sentencing was delayed to 4 August.
