Man targeted young girls on BBM, WhatsApp

Johannesburg - Sentencing of a Rustenburg man who targeted young daughters of divorced mothers on social media to get nude photographs was postponed in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

"The case was due for sentencing today but the court postponed the trial in order to have it moved to the regional court," said police spokesperson Elsabe Augoustides.

Construction worker Anthony Louw pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

The sexually enticing or explicit images were of young girls, some in early puberty. One girl was reportedly 12.

Using the names "Shivon", "Chivonne" or "Chevonne", he befriended divorced women and then their daughters on BBM and WhatsApp, police said.

He flattered them and the girls later sent him photos of themselves posing naked - some in front of the name signs of Rustenburg schools.

He was arrested after a tip off.

The trial was postponed to 27 August where it would be heard in a regional court.

What a prick and WHY were these kids willingly sending him pictures? Have a chat to their parents because they should have been raised better and I hope their phones WERE taken away

While this guy belongs behind bars, what on earth would go through a child's mind to agree to sending such pics ? Something can't be right to begin with for both the guy and the child. Good thing this dude has been caught

How is this possible? There are no chatrooms on Whatsapp and BBM, you can only contact people 1 to 1. Unless he got their numbers from mXit maybe?

This guy is a proper tosser. He needs a few big slaps. He has far too much time on his hands to think up and carry out this elaborate twisted scheme. He will have more time in jail and bubba can deal with him.
