Grandson arrested for assaulting gogo

Kraaifontein police learnt of a video that went viral on social media platforms where a teenager is seen assaulting a senior citizen and registered a case docket for the incident last night.

The victim who is from Wallacedene in Kraaifontein was traced where she is being treated in hospital for an ailment not related to the assault, but she declined to submit a statement.

Further investigation revealed that the incident occurred a month ago in June at the residence of the victim and that SAPS were summoned to the scene, but it is said that the family took the matter in their own hands and refused police assistance.

The severity of the matter was realised when a video of the incident was circulating on the internet and on this basis SAPS intervened and opened a case docket on behalf of the victim.

The suspect, aged 19 who is the grandson of the victim was arrested at his residence in Wallacedene last night and he is scheduled to make his court appearance in Blue Downs Magistrates court once he has been charged.

Crimes against women and children are on top of SAPS’ priority list, and we will not be turning a blind eye to any form of violence in this regard.
