A 16-year-old girl has allegedly been sexually assaulted by a homeless man at a public bathroom at Mitchell Park, Durban.
According to The Post, the girl was at Mitchell Park, Morningside, and went to use the bathroom.
The girl’s mother told The Post that a man dressed in worn out clothes approached her and held a knife to her neck.
Holding on to her hair, the man is believed to have groped her.
“He cut her on the shoulder and her neck, dropped her bra and groped her before touching her over her clothes. Thankfully, he was spooked by a group of female cleaners and ran off,” the victim’s mother said.
It is understood that the girl is receiving counselling.
