Police are looking for a man in connection with a theft in Tafelsig last year.

In December a child was at home in Dolomites Street when three men knocked on the door, claiming that they had been sent by a relative to fetch the TV and some takkies. The child allowed them into the house.

It was later discovered that the incident was a scam. Police believe a person known as Charra, allegedly from Lost City, Tafelsig, can help with this investigation.

A similar incident also occurred in Hartbees Street, Eastridge. The television and takkies were not recovered.

Parents are advised to teach their children not to open the door to strangers.

Parents must also put systems in place so their children can contact them if a similar incident occurs.

V Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Charra should contact detective Constable Genevieve Williams-Brown on 021 370 1782 or 073 223 4404.
