[Listen] How a brave listener tried to defend a security guard from attackers

A CapeTalk listener has described how she tried to fight off four men who were attacking a night shift security officer at the drive-thru KFC in Tokai.

Carla Bernado says she was driving home from Muizenberg just after midnight when she witnessed the incident.

I got out of the car and tried to stop the fight. I had my steering wheel lock with me to try and defend myself and this man.

They continued hitting him until I started shouting and the employees at KFC started shouting that the police are coming.

There were so many things there that were just horrific, of all the things we are having to face, especially poor and working class black people.

Bernado says the attackers sped off in a silver BMW. She later posted a video of the incident on social media.
