Spur win­dows shat­tered

The Rep - - NEWS - – Rep re­porter

SWIFT ac­tion by the owner of Buf­falo Springs Spur and a pa­tron re­sulted in the ap­pre­hen­sion of a man who had al­legedly thrown bricks through three of the eatery’s five front-fac­ing win­dows on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

An­drew van Wyk jnr of the Spur said about 60 chil­dren, with some adults also in at­ten­dance, were hav­ing a birth­day party in the Spur at about 3.15pm when the sound of shat­ter­ing glass was heard. A man, be­lieved to be men­tally un­sta­ble, man­aged to throw two more bricks be­fore Van Wyk and a pa­tron tack­led him.

“We are just so thank­ful that no-one was hurt as the Spur was full of peo­ple at the time. We have since learnt that bricks were also thrown at two ve­hi­cles in Cath­cart Road, re­sult­ing in dam­age to the wind­shields.”

The sus­pect was handed over to the po­lice.

Van Wyk said charges of as­sault and the de­struc­tion of prop­erty had been laid.
