A 75-year-old suspect is due in Wynberg Magistrates' Court today following his arrest on charges relating to sexual grooming and exploitation of a young girl in the Nyanga precinct.

The suspect was reported to the police and arrested on Wednesday after the father of the victim(14) discovered sensitive conversations exchanged between his daughter and the 75 year old neighbour. The family and neighbours confronted the suspect who after apologised to the family. A case was opened and he was arrested.

Meanwhile three suspects aged 28, 30 and 32 appeared in Athlone Magistrate Court yesterday for the possession of hijacked and stolen vehicles. Police received information of presumably stolen vehicles that were parked at the certain residence in Second Avenue, Zwelitsha Drive, Nyanga.

When police visited the address they spotted two vehicles, a BMW and an Audi fitted with false registration numbers. When tested the vehicles came out positive.  The BMW was reported stolen in March in Muizenberg and the Audi hijacked last month in Nyanga.
