Supporters of the PBI, ANC and EFF have gathered at the Garden Route mall, to protest the assault of a security guard from the mall by a member of the public.
The leadership of the political parties are said to have engaged the mall management about the incident.
According to the George Herald the incident happened on Thursday 11 June and a video of the incident which was shared on Facebook has since gone viral.
According to an eyewitness account of the incident, the woman entered the mall without a face mask and allegedly refused to wear one when asked to do so by the security guard.
A verbal altercation ensued between the woman and the security guard resulting in the woman slapping the guard across the face.
“That’s when his cap and his mask went flying. In the video you can see it lying on the floor,” the witness told the George Herald.
It has since been established that the man who attacked the security guard with a flying tackle is the woman’s fiance.
A case of assault has been opened for investigation.
