Satanist ‘lookalike’ to testify • Sunday February 2, 2003

Johannesburg – The court has postponed the trial of a man accused of indecently assaulting three children in the Kruger and Schubart Park flats in Pretoria in order to call a man, closely resembling the accused, as a state witness.

The Pretoria High Court heard that a man, who closely resembles Robert Malcolm Classen, and has the same name, was in the vicinity at the time.

The man, currently serving a prison sentence, appears to also have long hair, tattoos and similar facial features.

Classen is charged with raping and sexually molesting a seven-year-old girl and her two brothers on several occasions during Satanic rituals in September 2000.

The mother earlier testified her children had horrific nightmares of “ugly things, ugly faces with fangs”. One of her sons arrived home with the skull of a goat.

The mother filed charges after her children had told her of alleged molesting and “things that sounded like Satanism”.

The children named various people but singled out the “boss” as a man with various tattoos, long hair and earrings.

The state indicated on Friday it intended calling the other man who resembles Classen to testify on February 4.
