WESTERN CAPE - The Cape Town Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit is seeking the assistance of the public to trace 38-year-old Brent Van Dam who last resided in Vermeulen Street in Cape Town.

The suspect allegedly went to the bathrooms of a local school where he found two minor boys. He requested one of the boys to leave the bathroom and grabbed the boy that was using the facility inside the cubicle. The boy who left the bathroom returned and kicked the suspect who then lost his balance, which paved the way for the victims to escape. 

In an incident, a minor boy was using the bathrooms on the same premises when someone tried to gain entry into the bathroom. The young boy fought with all his might to keep the door closed with the perpetrator pushing to open the door. In this process, he saw the face of the suspect and recognised him, as the suspect is an employee of that institution of learning.

The address of the suspect was visited with no success. The investigating officer assigned to the case pursued all avenues, following up all available leads in a bid to arrest the suspect.

Anyone with information that will lead to the arrest of the suspect is kindly requested to call the investigating officer Sergeant Themba Tobi on 082 522 1083 or alternatively call Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or send information through MySAPS App.


Warrant Officer Joseph Swartbooi
