SAPS spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Sam said on Monday that the grandmother was assaulted and insulted by her grandson on March 10 after she had obtained a domestic violence protection order against him.

“The accused, Warren Vivian George, was found guilty of contravening the conditions set out in the protection order in the Hopetown Regional Court. He was sentenced to three years imprisonment and was also declared unfit to possess a firearm,” Sam added.

The Northern Cape provincial commissioner, Lieutenant-General Koliswa Otola, applauded the investigating officer, Detective Constable Katlego Chabagae, for ensuring that perpetrators who violate the rights of the elderly are brought to book.
