Following an attempted kidnapping at the Noordhoek Common on Saturday, September 19, a mother is warning parents to be extra vigilant.
In a Facebook Post, Zaheera Casey explained that her friend’s child was nearly abducted.
The mother explains: “Our nanny was with our son today at the common and someone approached her wanting to make a deal. He asked her a lot of questions about how much money we had, how much money she earned, if she wants a fancy house now, and that she must contact a certain number to make a deal. There is obviously a lot more detail to this, but basically the insinuation was her getting a lot of money and that our son was involved somehow.
“She was able to get hold of me and get herself and my son out of the conversation and wait for me near an adt car until I got there. She is a wreck, I am a wreck, but everyone is safe.”
“This happened now, to us, not a secondhand story. Please talk to any childminders, other moms and be aware yourselves. We’re reporting this to the police so that hopefully they will patrol. “
