“I walked past him, and he said ‘hallo skattie’, and blew kisses at me. I ignored him and carried on walking, until I saw him approach me out of the corner of my eye.”

“He grabbed my right arm and began to shake me. I managed to break free, but then he grabbed my left breast,” she told the George Herald.

The victim managed to shake off the man.

According to the victim, this is not the first time that so-called car guards have made inappropriate comments towards her.

After the incident, she took to the Facebook group ‘Georgiete Staan Saam’ to explain what happened. The post received countless responses from members of the public who have experienced similar attacks.

The attacked was detained and has been let off with a warning. He is expected to appear in court this week.

“Another two women and a man interacted the same ‘car guard’. We waited for help for more than half an hour, when Streeteyes Guarding came to our aid. The attacked ran away in the interim.”
