A man was assaulted, allegedly by a group of taxi drivers, while travelling on the N2 in Cape Town on Wednesday morning.
"Athlone police are investigating an assault common case after a man was assaulted by taxi drivers on the N2 between Bhunga and Jan Smuts Drive at about 07:30 [on Wednesday] morning," police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said.
A video of the attack has gone viral. The video shows three men attacking the man on the N2 highway and it appears that someone sitting in a taxi is recording the incident.
The three attackers can be seen hitting and kicking the man, whose T-shirt appears to be torn. One of the attackers uses a bag to hit the man and another kicks him to the ground, before two bystanders intervene.
No arrests have been made.
"Anyone with any information about this incident is kindly requested to contact Athlone SAPS on 021 697 9238 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111," he added.
