Police say that a father and son, who attacked a Wonderboom Airport security guard supervisor on Wednesday, used the K-word before repeatedly hitting him.

In an altercation caught on CCTV cameras, Morris Segapu sustained injuries to his body and face while he was on duty.

According to Segapu, the father and son were enraged when their parking ticket would not open the boom gate.

"Instead of just asking us to please help them open the gate, these guys were just shouting... They said: 'Don’t waste our time. Open the gate, we want to go out. Hey k****r open the gate,'" he said.

The verbal confrontation turned to blows when Segapu asked the father to calm down.

The son allegedly told Segapu: "Ek sal jou bliksem, jou f****n k****r," ("I will hit you, you f*****g k****r.")

"When I tried to run away to go under the boom, that boy (the son), grabbed me by my reflective jacket and they pulled me and they started hitting me," Segapu said.

Sinoville police spokesperson Warrant Officer Johan Van Dyk said a case of crimen injuria and assault had been opened.

"Two suspects swore at the security guard, used the k-word and assaulted him," van Dyk told News24.

He confirmed that one person had been arrested and was expected to appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on Friday.

The other is still at large.

Wonderboom Airport manager Waheed Mohamed said he was aware of the incident.

"That incident is still under investigation, so it is actually a police matter. I can't comment any further at this stage," Mohamed added.
