Sexual Harassment from a minor?

So there's this one kid in my neighborhood I think he's something like 10 to 12. Two days ago he followed me from the bus stop to my house (around 6 minutes) and i thought he lived in the same building or something. When i stopped in front of my door, he grabbed my butt and quickly cycled away. I was so shocked and mad at the same time. Yesterday he followed me to the bus stop AGAIN but luckily there was my neighbor at the bus stop so I told her what he did and he saw us and he cycled away. Today my boyfriend saw him following some Asian's girl again and my boyfriend ran after him but he was too fast to catch. We asked Coop employees they said they know this kid, because he often steals something from Coop. But no one knows who is his parent and where he lives.
I don't know if he only do this to Asian's women, but I don't want this to happen to me or anyone again, I feel so unsafe right now because he's not like a little kid, he's big and creepy. I heard that here in Switzerland kids are untouchable and also not guilty. Please can you advise me what I should do now, I only have the picture of his face and a video of him (but he's hiding his face)


I want to go to the police but i'm not sure if this problem is big enough maybe people think it's a prank? Or should I try to find out who is his parent and talk to them?

Re: Sexual Harassment from a minor?

Yep, go to the police. Even if he's only a kid now, leaving this kind of behaviour unchecked can lead to worse things once he's is older and stronger.

Definately not a prank, go to the police and make an official compalint, mention the bit about the Coop (to get them involved) and show them just the photo of his face. Taking a video may be in breach of privacy laws, a photo can be construed as protecting yourself as you gave it to the police for identification purposes.

Re: Sexual Harassment from a minor?

Isn't there a thread somewhere about another young woman having a similar problem with a minor? I wonder if it's the same boy? Can't find the thread though.

This is the thread...

https://www.englishforum.ch/daily-li...olice-not.html

Please call the police. It's sexual assault and the boy will only get worse if not challenged. I always think, if he's brazen enough to assault an adult, what's he capable of with a child.

That was in Lachen, this OP lives in Glattfelden. I've no idea if those too places are close, but I thought I'd post to sound knowledgeable and helpful.
