KRUGERSDORP – Police are on the hunt for a man who broke into the SAVF Moreglans old age home and harassed elderly women while they were sleeping.
According to investigating officer Constable Pholo, the man entered the facility twice -- first on February 8 and then again on February 15.
The suspect seems to have intimate knowledge of the facility, going unnoticed while moving from room to room.
CCTV footage shows the man standing next to a woman's bed while unzipping his pants. He then opens the duvet covers and touches himself.
Another clip shows the man -- naked from the waist down -- getting into bed with an elderly woman. He is shown getting out of bed and pulling his pants up.
Pholo said a nurse on duty saw the suspect and managed to lock him inside a room. He however managed to escape by climbing through a window.
SAVF manager Marieta Kemp said the organisation has taken stringent measures to ensure incidences like this do not happen again.
Moreglans manager Diederik Coetzee refused to comment.
