Gauteng police arrest 4 of 6 men over KFC drive-through assault
JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng police have arrested four of the six men accused of assaulting a couple at a KFC in Montana, north of Pretoria on Wednesday.
A video of the couple being attacked sparked anger when it was shared on social media on Friday prompting Police Minister Fikile Mbalula to request an urgent investigation.
The couple was allegedly assaulted when they asked the driver of the car in front of them to move forward in the drive-through queue.
The police’s Vuyo Mhaga says the Police Minister takes the attack seriously and wants the men to be arrested urgently.
“Basically, it’s obvious, one it’s an act of racist attack, two, we can’t resolve any difference that we have in the country through violence.”
Gauteng police’s Kay Makhubele says police are searching for two of the six men who were involved in the assault.
“During the incident, the community members called the police and the police immediately ran to the scene, others were arrested and the other suspects fled the scene.”
He says the couple is receiving counselling.
