WhatsApp, BBM stalker case postponed

Johanesburg - Sentencing of a Rustenburg man who solicited nude photographs from young daughters of divorced mothers on social media was postponed on Wednesday, North West police said.

The case in the Rustenburg Regional Court of construction worker Anthony Louw was postponed to 8 September as the court was awaiting transcription records, said Captain Elsabe Augoustides.

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.
