The girls were reportedly “hysterical”.

Police are investigating allegations that three little girls were kept in a ‘cage-like’ cell at a Johannesburg police station. The parents of the three girls alleged that their daughters, one aged 7 and the other two both 11 years old, were locked up for about two hours, according to reports. The alleged incident sparked outrage after a Facebook post on a local community group – which appears to have since been removed. Provincial police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini confirmed to YOU that an investigation into the shocking claims is underway.

The girls’ parents are believed the have been arrested in the early afternoon on 11 July and taken to Roodepoort Police Station.

According to the Roodepoort Record, the mother claims police did not offer to call their family or friends to fetch the girls. Instead, officers on duty locked them up with criminals, she alleges.

The girls were allegedly “hysterical”.
