The individual has allegedly broken into the Krugersdorp old age home in the west of Johannesburg twice, with the second incident caught on camera.
The first incident reportedly took place on 8 February, with the same man appearing to return the premises a week later on 15 February. In CCTV footage obtained by the Krugersdorp News, the man takes off his trousers, pulls an elderly woman’s duvet off her and forces her to look at him while standing next to her bed.
The same night he gets into another resident’s bed, then emerges from underneath the covers and leaves while pulling up his trousers.
Krugersdorp police spokesperson Tshepiso Mashale has given assurances that patrols in the area would be increased, while management of the retirement home have reportedly changed the locks and deployed extra security.
Management chose not to comment on the matter.
