Reactions from Wynberg residents to the posting of the picture on Facebook:


  • Michelle: We used to see him around a lot late at night when we walked our dogs. Super dodgy! Saw him outside Wynberg pharmacy on Wednesday. Will contact the police next time I see him.
  • Oliver: 2 weeks ago while I was working on my car I spotted him urinating against our neighbour’s wall in Wellington Walk while he was inspecting the parked vehicles. I reprimanded him & 2 nights later the very car I was working on was targeted & broken into.
  • Kate: I saw him about 2 weeks ago walking from Wellington road direction up Wilson road wearing a black leather jacket.
