Police warn parents to be more vigilant

NCD police have raised the concern that there are too many sexual offenses cases involving minors.

The NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou says that there were a number of sexual offences reported during the Christmas and Boxing Day period.

Superintendent N’Dranou said there have been continuous reports of sexual abuse of minors and futher called on parents to keep a close eye on their children, especially girls.

“I urge parents to continue to look after their children properly to suppress and prevent attacks on young children.”

He adds that such cases are becoming prevalent for young people in NCD.

Meantime, the NCD Superintendent of Operations, Chief Inspector, Michael Tilae, reiterated similar concerns, for the fact that the offenders are known to the minors.

“During this period of celebrations, parents must not indulge too much on activities that will leave their children, unattended. These are times, when these prowlers make their move,” he warned.
