A 74-year-old  South African lady has called for the arrest of her 50-year-old son for allegedly stealing money from her bag.

She reported the matter to the Daveyton police station after he committed the offence on December 6 at about 11am.

Lieutenant Colonel Kelebogile Thepa, a spokesman for the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department (EMPD), stated that the suspect was apprehended on Tuesday, December 12, 2023.

Thepa said; “The 74-year-old female complainant alleges that on December 6, at 11am, while she and her naughty son, the suspect, were relaxing at home, she quickly went to the bathroom. The mother left behind a handbag containing an undisclosed amount of money.

When she (the mother) came back, the son was nowhere to be found. Money was missing from the handbag. The mother said she is sure that the money was stolen by her son.”

The mother also claimed that her son had taken a two-plate cooker and the memory card from her cell phone over the previous week.

When she challenged him about the stove and missing memory card at the scene, he denied knowing anything about the property.

“The sick and tired parent registered a case of theft and the perpetrator was arrested and taken to the Daveyton police station. The detained suspect is expected to appear at the Daveyton Magistrate’s Court soon,” the police spokesperson added.
