Meanwhile, Superintendent Sharon Beeput, the commanding officer for Hanover says police have been taking a zero-tolerance approach against sex offenders.

“We are not playing around when it comes to male predators molesting females, especially small children,” she said

Beeput also urged mothers to pay special attention to their children and to take action if they report being sexually abused

Since the start of the year, Hanover has recorded six sexual offence cases involving children

The police have made arrests in all six cases
