with photoCrime reporter Kees van der Spek says he saw a notorious thief on RTL 4 on Wednesday night. the perfect image. Right behind host Tijl Beckand and contestant Rick Brandsteder was a man whom the journalist had previously exposed on his show. scammers treated. Then the man would have offered her sex with a child.
As idyllic as the Cape Town park appeared in the photo display, it was very dark in the same spot three years ago. At that time, Kees van der Spek showed on RTL 5 how a man running the toilets approached him. If Van der Spek returned from the park close to closing time, the man would give him access to the restroom building. There an 11-year-old boy would be waiting for him.
Van der Spek did just that, with a hidden camera in his pocket. In the park there was no child, but two accomplices of the man. Just before the trio could lock Van der Spek in the building, he made a name for himself as a television maker. The men escaped, but a local neighbor told what would have happened. The men were armed with pepper spray and knives and attacked tourists daily with this stunt.
The reporter wanted to prevent them from making any more victims and posted with his team in the park. One of the men reappeared there the next day, after which Van der Spek literally grabbed him by the throat. The man turned out to be quite strong and the journalist had a hard time subduing him, but once he was lying down, the police were able to apprehend him.
