Spur windows shattered
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.
