The police are said to have started an investigation into a case of alleged sexual assault after a Virgin Active gym member was caught on camera while masturbating in the centre of the gym in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, on Thursday.
As police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk claimed, Western Cape police office confirmed that a sexual assault case was opened on the 20th May 2019 at Stellenbosch SAPS.
The alleged perpetrator has not been arrested yet as the video is yet to be studied, and affidavits and other information have to be gathered.
In line with the Criminal Procedure Act, the man may not be named if under 18. The suspect’s age is not to be disclosed until he has pleaded in court.
“The gym would not comment further on the matter, and didn’t answer questions on whether he was an adult or a minor,” Virgin Active spokesperson Carla White stated.
