Angry commuters at Naledi train station in Soweto damaged and vandalised nine vehicles belonging to Metrorail and Prasa employees.
Soweto Saps spokesperson Kay Makhubele says the commuters got angry after the train did not arrive on time, moved to the parking lot where they started pelting the vehicles with stones and torched at least one car.
Makhubele says the trains were delayed because of cable theft between Dube and Naledi stations.
He says Metrorail is currently trying to resolve the issue but the police are also monitoring the situation.
