The father who was incarcerated for defending his daughter’s honor was freed today but her predator remains on the loose. As you may recall, a 9-year-old girl was verbally harassed on a community bus on Friday evening as she made her way home on a commuter bus. The child went home and informed her parents. Her father approached the brother of the predator who was also present on the bus to verify the allegations of his daughter. Love News understands that an altercation ensued between the men and the father was detained at the Ladyville Police Station. Video footage was to be reviewed in order to verify the wounding allegation. The video footage was unable to be reviewed today, but the father was still released. Love News spoke to the mother this evening who was unaware of the grounds her husband was released on.
Mother: “When I went this morning they told me that they were waiting to review a camera, a camera that we had put to them from yesterday, the person that owns the camera had personally called them in front of me and told them that he was at home if they could have come and reviewed the camera at that moment. The police had said that yes they were going to review the camera, up to this morning that was not done. When they attempted to do it this morning the person had went out across the border so they were waiting on him to return to review the camera. What happened this afternoon I don’t know because as far as I know they haven’t reviewed the camera but my husband is out. He says he believes it’s because I came on the media with it and I shared our experience.”
The mother of the child is pleading to the public to communicate with their children. According to the mother, if she did not have an open relationship with her daughter, her daughter would be suffering in silence.
Mother: “We really need to educate our children, girls and boys. We see what is happening in the society right now and it’s not just girls it’s boys as well. We need to educate them as to what harassment is, we need to educate them about the simple good touch and bad touch. We need to educate them on what they should tolerate and what to expect from people because reality is the world is not like before. We have a lot of perverts out here and we need to educate our children because some of them might see it as the norm and that is far from the norm. I feel very disgusted I’ll be honest with you I feel very disgusted, that guy is a shame to society especially with the age that he has he should be looking out for the younger children but we know that that is far from reality right now like I said. I just want for parents to be aware of the people that we have around us, be mindful, be watchful, educate your children and monitor them; talk to them because that is what I do with my children and that’s the reason why she felt comfortable sharing that with me. That is an evening ritual with us, whenever I come in the evening I would ask them how their day went and that was what my baby shared with me as I asked that that evening and you could see where she was disturbed – up to now my daughter is very disturbed.”
The predator is still being sought by Police.
