Incident regarding school girls – 14 November 2023

14 November 2023

On Monday 13 November 2023, a WhatsApp message began to circulate regarding an alleged incident regarding two school girls on Adelaide Tambo (Kensington) Drive, Durban North.
Despite our best efforts at the time, we were unable to authenticate the message or locate the original sender, until she contacted the DNU-CPF today.

From what we can ascertain, the two school girls were walking from a local school, to the McDonalds in Swapo Road. On the way there, they were followed and repeatedly harassed by men in a metallic blue vehicle, who were talking to and calling out to them whilst driving behind them. The girls, feeling threatened, started to run down the road away from the men.

A Westville CPF member, who happened to be driving past at the time, noticed the girls in a state of distress, and stopped to assist them, who proceeded to get into her car. It was here that a second vehicle stopped in front, but the CPF member was able to drive off. Both suspect vehicles left in the other direction.

For now, it appears that the motive behind this was either to a mugging, or a possible attempted abduction, but this has not been determined, as no physical attempts to pull the girls into the car had occurred as yet.

The incident has been reported to the Durban North SAPS, and further investigations will be conducted. The vehicle descriptions will be circulated to the relevant teams for monitoring.

We commend the actions of a fellow CPF member in stopping to assist and drive the school girls away from the scene.
