Teen tells of sexual assault

2012-02-29 07:56

Cape Town - A 31-year-old man has appeared in court after being accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl on two occasions.

Gerald Abrahams was linked to the brutal death of his daughter Kim Abrahams, whose body was found in 2005, the Daily Voice reported.

A neighbour, Jerome Holmes, was arrested for the murder. He later said he had seen Abrahams walking into bushes with his daughter and that he had heard Kim making gurgling noises. He also said they were both under the influence of drugs.

Both Holmes and Abrahams were acquitted on all charges.

But on Friday, Abrahams appeared in court after being arrested for indecently touching another girl when she spent the night at his home.

The girl told the Daily Voice she woke up to find Abrahams touching her private parts on two occasions. He stopped when she asked him what he was doing.

"I was sleeping when I felt someone get in next to me and when I turned on my cellphone’s light, it was him. He tried to put his arms around me but I pushed him away and again he got up and left."
 
After the second incident, the girl told her sister.

Abrahams’s wife of nine months has reportedly left him after the latest allegations against him. They have a 2-year-old son.

Abrahams was released on R1 000 bail.

    Oversexed individual. He should be put away for good.

      I agree , not let him out on bail , poor girl has to live in fear. Damn the man.

      The person (he is not a man), should be castrated. Done and dusted. Get rid of all that 'energy'. I hope the wife took the 2 year old kid with.

      what was a 14yr old girl, doing in his apartment in the first place? they have no kids around that age?

      Lionel - 2012-02-29 12:04

      What happened to a fair trial? He's innocent until otherwise proven.

    yip just let them go on bail all of them... i wish they would hang people again in this hole!

      lindz.kok - 2012-02-29 09:18

      seems like once again there are 5 child molesters on this site who opposes the death sentance.

      Janice - 2012-02-29 09:32

      Yes, what a bunch of cowards!!!

      cheryl.kristiansen - 2012-02-29 13:56

      @lindz.kok. So because I'm against the death penalty I must be a child molester? Excuse me? Does that presumption then make you a bl**dy fool?

      lindz.kok - 2012-02-29 15:40

      you know very well what i meant cheryl, if you do not have the abilety to think for yourself then that is defenatly your problym, thank you and bye bye :)

  • Johan - 2012-02-29 08:19

    This man is sick and should be jailed!

      Silvana - 2012-02-29 08:51

      He's not a man. He's sub-human.

  • Stormkaap - 2012-02-29 08:22

    Catsrate him I say and send him for life to jail

  • Muneer23 - 2012-02-29 08:25

    "Released on bail"....S.A's get out of jail free card

  • arlene.flynn3 - 2012-02-29 08:30

    what is wrong with our justice system - he gets bail?? He is now free to go sexual abuse other little girls!!

      Lionel - 2012-02-29 12:06

      What if he's innocent? It has happened that guys who are innocent spend up to two years awaiting trial, rotting in gaol. Then they are still stigmatised with the epithet "rapist" etc.

      arthurbrigg - 2012-02-29 13:43

      Lionel - Sorry boet, where there's smoke there's fire! I'll apologise if after the trial he is found to be innocent, but when it comes to kids I say "guilty" until proven innocent.

  • TBlogger - 2012-02-29 08:45

    Let out on bail? What a joke our justice system has become.. Letting an accused child molester for R1000. So while his case is postponed for the next three years, he molests another 100 victims? PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!

  • Ingi - 2012-02-29 08:49

    He was what............??? Let out on R1000 bail!!! Arrest the BASTARD and chuck him to crocs, lions, snakes.....whatever! Handcuff him first and throw away the key. How dare he or any other man touch any woman without her full consent. Sex can be wicked, horrific and disgusting, what has happened to love, caring??????????????????????????????

  • althea.cockrell - 2012-02-29 08:52

    R1000 bail???? Are you kidding me?? So thats the going rate for a woman/girl being indecently assaulted!!!! Over and above the fact that he probably got away with murder!! Sick, disgusting animal....throw him him in jail with sexual offenders and see if he can talk his way out of getting HIS ass assaulted!

  • elsabe.wessels1 - 2012-02-29 09:03

    Both of them under the influence of drugs? What was he doing with his daughter in the bushes? How many other young girls might there be? And he got bail... of R1000. Really, could this get any more pathetic??

      Bruce - 2012-02-29 14:00

      It seems "being under the influence of drugs" is an excuse for a multitude of sins!

  • Leon - 2012-02-29 09:11

    sisk,sick,sick Vote for castration

  • Pieter - 2012-02-29 09:11

    Net 'n Duisend Rand? Ernstig? Ek gaan leder my woorde sluk anders is hierdie comment vol woorde wat nie gebruik hoef te word nie!

  • Snoopy.zn - 2012-02-29 09:18

    Wow! First Acquited of murder.. And now let loose on R1000.00 bail so that he can commit more crimes against young little girls.. Wake up Zum Aap, you have NO JUSTICE SYSTEM IN THIS GOD FORSAKEN HOLE!!!

  • Grimmister - 2012-02-29 09:21

    IOL has a story of the original murder. This man should have never been outside of a prison. http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/girl-six-found-dead-after-going-on-errand-1.250840?ot=inmsa.ArticlePrintPageLayout.ot

  • Rob - 2012-02-29 09:33

    And Zuma is worrying about the constitutional court! He should rather give attention to the conduct of the magistrates who give easily pathetic bails to obvious perverts and murderers.

  • kasamkelo - 2012-02-29 09:36

    Eish these DA boys

  • reza.daniels1 - 2012-02-29 10:13

    If this animal had been put down in the first place this would not have happened. I blame the inept, incompetent and uninterested police. How the hell can you kill your own daughter. Just the thought of it makes me sick. (and yes I know it's speculation)

  • candice.raley - 2012-02-29 10:23

    Oh my R1000 bail release, I think someone like this sick pervert should be jailed and not free to do as he pleases as we all know he will do it again. I don't understand this country, I think they like drama and sick people on the streets to harm people, especially little children as they can be scared for life when it comes to sexual harassment.

  • Bibi - 2012-02-29 10:36

    Justice for our children!

  • Kimon - 2012-02-29 12:04

    R1000 bail? thats all??

  • Johann - 2012-02-29 12:16

    A thousand rand bail what is wrong with our system

  • rickey.de.clercq - 2012-02-29 12:22

    R1000 bail for this perverted sick son of a bitch??? Is that all the poor girl's (and how many others) dignity is worth???

  • Klaus - 2012-02-29 12:33

    When i look at most of those very valid comments made and see how many debouched perverts/morons give a 'Thumbs down' to them,I worry for the safety of our children!!

  • Dianne - 2012-02-29 13:22

    Filthy pervert......cut his ding dong off and squash it with a brick !!!!! Lock him up and let his cell mates play "house house" with him.

  • Patrick - 2012-02-29 13:35

    castrate the fool............

  • Tyran Von Bear - 2012-03-01 06:43

    Don't you just LOVE our justice system?! R1000 bail. Criminals get off too easy. Rapists and killers are freed to continue. Well done, f@cktards
