The Food Lover's Market has suspended three members of the management team at one of its stores in Lenasia, following what appears to be a racially motivated attack.
According to reports, a black worker was attacked with a knife, by a co-worker, for not wearing a Food Lover Market cap while conducting his chores.
Video footage of the assault has been circulated on social media.
Food Lover's Market CEO, Brian Coppin says a criminal case has been opened.
