A SENZI’S On Faya bouncer was mugged in Margate on Thursday after he allegedly beat up a friend of the muggers at the pub previously.

The bouncer said the muggers allegedly cornered him on Erasmus Street in Margate as he was walking home from work at about 3pm. Margate SAPS spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka said the bouncer was grabbed by the neck by two unknown males.

“The one tried chocking him while the other took his belongings,” said Mfeka.

“As they were choking me they claimed they were avenging their friend, who I had beaten up at Senzi’s,” said the bouncer.

He said he did not know who the suspects or their friend was as he had been in altercations with many people due to the nature of his job. The muggers allegedly took his cellphone and wallet before running away. Margate SAPS spokesperson are investigating a robbery case and no arrests have been made as yet.
