Johannesburg - A video has emerged of two men attacking another man in Norwood, Johannesburg, while accusing him of raping a young girl.

Police have since said, however, that no one has come forward to report the matter.

The video of the attack, which allegedly happened on Grant Avenue, was posted by the North Eastern Tribune.

According to the local newspaper, the attack happened when the man was sitting at the Europa restaurant.

It was not clear when the video was taken.

The two men are seen kicking their victim, who is dressed in a black suit pants and a collared shirt, and then chasing him a short distance up the road.

When they catch up to him, they continue to kick and punch him.

One of the men shouts, "You raped my fucking daughter", while he kicks the man who is lying on the ground.

A second younger man then starts kicking and punching him, while someone instructs him to "Kick him. Low punch. Upper-cut boy".

The one attacker then shouts repeatedly: "You want to rape young girls..."

Police spokesperson Sergeant Mduduzi Zondo said: "At this stage, we don't know [from where] this video is surfacing."

No case of assault has been opened, he said.
