A 24-year-old man appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court on Friday after he allegedly tried to grab a young child at a shopping center in Florida on Gauteng’s West Rand the day before.
Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said the “unknown man grabbed the child by the neck, as if he wanted to take her”.
A bystander intervenes quickly to bring the man under control and he is arrested.
The man says with no shame that he has a nice feeling with kids and then in another video allegedly says an Islamic greeting.
SA Updates earlier posted the attempted kidnapping.
