CPF member arrested for assaulting a minor

A member of a community policing forum in Mpumalanga has been arrested for allegedly assaulting an eight-year-old kid.

The 44-year-old man is accused of using a belt to physically abuse the child as punishment for allegedly stealing a phone.

It’s understood the child lives a short distance from the home of the CPF member.

Mpumalanga police spokesperson, Donald Mdhluli, said the boy sustained visible injuries.

Mdhluli said the 44-year-old was later arrested and is expected to appear in court on Wednesday on a charge of assault.

“More charges could possibly be added against the suspect as the investigation continues.”
