Roadside tiff: All’s well that ends well

2010-01-26 00:00

POLICE were quick to respond to a call from The Witness yesterday evening, after the editorial staff heard the cries of a woman in Willowton Road.

A Witness reporter and other staff members went to investigate, only to find the woman was crying because her boyfriend had left her stranded on the roadside.

As the reporter approached the woman, a white Mazda bakkie came to a stop next to her.

She was heard asking her boyfriend why he had left her on the side of the road at that time of night.

He responded: “I didn’t mean to do it. If I had meant to do it, I wouldn’t have come back for you. Please just get into the car.”

The woman calmed down and climbed back into the car.

Police were at The Witness gates in about two minutes, but the couple had already left. It was explained to them the incident had arisen from a lovers’ tiff.
