Johannesburg - A security guard has laid a charge of assault with police after he was allegedly beaten by residents at an upmarket Krugersdorp housing estate.
The brutal assault was captured on CCTV cameras, reported The Star.

The Fidelity Security employee had responded to a noise complaint at the Featherbrooke Estate.

After asking that the resident at the home concerned reduced the noise level, an altercation ensued, an internal bulletin says. The guard fled to the guardhouse but his alleged attackers - three men and two women - followed him.

The man was pictured with blood streaming down his face and a swollen left eye.

A case has been opened with police. The estate has not yet named the residents concerned in fear of vigilante attacks from other residences.
Property at the luxury complex can go for up to R10m, according to the Eden Estates website. It is home to well-known people such as Bafana Bafana player Teko Modise.

Attempts by News24 to get comment from Fidelity Security and Featherbrooke Estate were unsuccessful.
