It is reported that two children, aged 7 and 8 years, are accused of torturing a 3-year-old toddler to death on a dumping site in Primrose, Germiston.
The preliminary police report says that two children admitted to assaulting and torturing the boy. “They assaulted the toddler with stones, tied him up with a rope and pushed him down the mountain-like slide to the bottom” on Sunday afternoon.
When the boy rolled downhill, the guys got scared and ran down after him to see what happened. Once getting to the bottom, they realized that the boy was unconscious and tried to bring him round, yet didn’t succeed and just left him there.
The police have provided no further information about this episode yet.
“We are searching for witnesses and are currently tracing an alleged suspect,” police officials stated.
