Alleged paedophile held in Knysna

2012-05-05 18:32

Johannesburg - A man accused of sexually abusing minors was arrested in Knysna on Saturday, police said.

Members of the George family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit obtained a search warrant for the man's home after receiving a tip-off from a member of the public, said Captain Malcolm Pojie.

Three people, a man now aged 21 and two women, now aged 18, allege that they were raped over a period of time while they were still minors. The two women are believed to have been eight-years-old at the time.

The man's latest victim, also an eight-year-old girl, was allegedly raped on 29 April.

All victims allege that they were lured into bushes in the George area by the man where he raped them. Some of the victims allege that they were also raped inside the man's Land Rover.

Police seized the man's vehicle, cameras, laptops and a video camera. He will appear in the George Magistrate's court on Monday.

    Let me hear someone defending this scumbag. Let the racial circus begin.

      Pixie86 - 2012-05-05 18:49

      i'm concerned that after reading this article all that popped into your head was the race issue. What about thinking about the victims or the crime done. Sheesh!

      Squeegee - 2012-05-05 18:56

      Let's hope the victims get justice. Eventually.

      Squeegee - 2012-05-05 19:16

      No, his name is Anthony Michael.. a registered idiot.

      Smile - 2012-05-05 19:31

      HANG HIM IF HE IS GUILTY!!!! As I said before, pedophilia cannot be cured! If these people are allowed back into society they become repeat defenders.

      Anthony - 2012-05-05 20:03

      am i the only one sick to death on hearing these storys of rape and child abuse ffs SA lets do something...

      Jerry - 2012-05-05 20:26

      He probably going to get a taste of his own medicine if he gets to see the inside of jail. Let justice prevail.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-05 20:40

      Sueeegee, Before you become too smart, Let me tell you , that the by far majority of kids that are sexually abused are done so by the ones known to the kids, and of those pedophiles, the by far the majority are in a position of authority !!! In the last few years, in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF CASES have come to light, involving PRIESTS !!!!!! In this case, going on over a period of 10 years, it is most certainly someone known to these victims, and very likely, someone in authority , like a PIEST !!! STUPID IDIOT !!

      Squeegee, """Priest sought after girl, 10, raped 2012-05-05 11:20"""

      Squeegee - 2012-05-06 08:25

      Anthony, according to you all priests are pedos and all pedos are priests. Wow, now that's bright. You were trolling and you don't like being caught out. Get back down your hole.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-06 08:51

      Squeegee, When you want to make a comment, don't become silly and childish; I NEVER said ALL priests are peadophiles, and I know of some RC priests, who do amazing work, but there is no denying, that in the RC Church is a massive problem, with child sexual abuse.!! You must learn to read, and than think, and than make a comment.

  • Squeegee - 2012-05-05 18:45

    With no possibility of the death penalty I call for public humiliation and corporal punishment before jail time. Let's get serious and show pedos what awaits them...

  • Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 18:54

    Investigate as far, wide and deep as you need to, to ensure you bring the most charges against these people. But until then, no bail. And if the investigation takes longer than the max permitted detention without charges, house arrest.

    Ontman die moer

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 19:03

      This is not about manhood. This is about violence, domination and control. Chopping off body parts will not fix their minds. There is no cure. For the safety of us all, we demand that they never be allowed to walk amongst us ever again.

  • Rohin - 2012-05-05 18:58

    why did the other victims wait over 10 years to report the guy. they could've save the latest victim and possibly other children from the same fate.

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 19:49

      When a person is systematically tortured for 10 years - especially starting at such a young age (8) - there is total control by the perpetrator. They create a fear early and make these children believe that they are dependent on them for their survival, drug them, give them gifts and use whatever manipulation they can. There are countless stories the world over of this type of domination - and docu-dramas if you research. As the children get older and reach the 'unappealing' age, paedophiles will bring new victims into the fold. By which time most often their existing victims have been coerced into help capture and 'train' new victims. It's a totally horrific cycle of abuse and indoctrination. Keep your focus in the perpetrators, not the victims.

      Savannah - 2012-05-06 07:03

      Oh Robin, you are obviously oblivious to the psychology of abuse. Best not to comment at all if you don't understand...

  • Deana - 2012-05-05 19:07

    Sick, disturbed bastard! Kill him- paedophiles can't be rehabilitated.

      James Makondi - 2012-05-05 19:41

      I think that man is not normal, he neets help, how can u do sutc things to innocent children that could have been your own, what is the man thinking, sick busted,

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 20:07

      @James Makondi - you are right. He is not normal. But we have a mental health crisis that is too big to solve overnight. The world over, all the help that has been tried has failed. As much as we can understand that these people are ill, there is no cure, so we must insist that they are not allowed back into society once convicted.

    This is what happens when Councillors start watching child pornography using ratepayers' resources

      Squeegee - 2012-05-05 20:01


      Lerato - 2012-05-05 20:17

      Are you the councillor?

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 21:30

      You might be mistaking effect for cause. Abduction, trafficking, sexual grooming, rape, torture, drug-addiction, prostitution. The end-consumer - Councillor or not - is contributing to this insidious industry. Child pornography is the end product of an horrific journey for many children who will be killed once they have exceeded their marketable age or sold on to prostitution conglomerates. Possession of child porn should carry the max and not be trivialised as a 'ratepayer' or voyeuristic peccadillo. Any consumer, anywhere in the chain, is contributing to human trafficking.

      Lerato - 2012-05-05 21:41

      @Lacrimose I agree 100%, well said!

      Pixie86 - 2012-05-05 21:44

      i don't see the relevance of that article to this one. Now if you'd said porn can encourage someone to do something like this i'd understand.

      Lerato - 2012-05-05 21:48

      @Smile I guess you didn't use your previous advantage effectively, you should have equiped yourself for life - Education!
