Cape Town - A woman is terrified after a sex pest threatened to rape her and her four-year-old daughter.
The 46-year-old mother showed several offensive text messages she received from the stalker.
The woman said that she now fears for her daughter, who attends a crèche close to her home in Khanya Park in Gugulethu.
The mom, who divorced her husband of 15 years, runs a clothing and sweets stall at the Philippi train station.
She said that her month-long nightmare started when her phone rang on the night of September 14. But the caller hung up the when she answered the phone.
And minutes later, she received a menacing SMS, threatening her and her daughter.
The stalker, who writes in isiXhosa, demands sex and also warns her about her movements away from home.
Some of these messages are too offensive to be printed.
Translated from isiXhosa, one text read: “It’s cold and I am horny I wish I could have anal sex with you. I love you so much.”
And in another message, the pest called the woman by her maiden name: “Nogcinile, come let’s have sex, I want you to feel the pain. And I will forgive you if you could have sex with me.
“I will fetch your daughter from crèche and rape her.”
Another SMS read: “I am watching you when you leave your home to the station.”
The woman said that she now has to watch her back wherever she goes.
“I am very worried because I don’t know who this person is,” she said.
“The stalker is even watching me when I leave home to go to the stall.
“My family is worried too, I wish I could talk to this person who makes my life so miserable.”
Gugulethu police spokesman Captain Elliot Sinyangana said a case of intimidation has been opened.
“Police are conducting an investigation and detectives will obtain necessary documents from the court to obtain information from the cellphone provider,” Sinyangana said.
