Father furious about road rage assault on his sons

The siblings' father, Marvin Naidoo, said he received a frantic call from his eldest son and rushed to the scene to find a man shouting racial slurs and his sons beaten up.

A ROAD rage incident in Malvern resulted in a 16-year-old boy being assaulted and his angry father determined to pursue a case of child abuse.

On the evening of Wednesday, 13 September, the Naidoo brothers (20 and 16) were on their way home when they were assaulted by a motorist who claimed they put his life in danger at the Riverplate and Knightsway Road intersection.

The siblings’ father, Marvin Naidoo, said he received a frantic call from his eldest son and rushed to the scene to find a man shouting racial slurs and his sons beaten up.

According to the eldest brother, who was driving, they noticed the vehicle approaching the stop street as they proceeded across the intersection.

“We thought nothing of it at the time as we drive on that road daily to get home,” he said.

The motorist followed the boys flicking his lights encouraging them to stop and the older brother decided to stop before reaching his home.

According to him, the motorist, a man with a fair complexion, got out of his vehicle angrily and charged at the driver’s side, hurling racial slurs.

The man allegedly told the older brother that he could not drive and called him the C-word.

“The man reached for the keys so I grabbed his arm and told him not to touch my keys. He then punched me in the face while forcing the door closed. I could smell the alcohol on his breath,” the older brother said.

During this altercation, the older brother asked his brother to take down the details of the vehicle using his phone and that is when the driver moved over to the passengers side to pin the 16 year old to the ground and punch him.

“He kept saying that he wants to teach us a lesson,” the older brother said.

The man claimed that they had put him and his family in danger as they had failed to stop at the intersection.

“I called my father and then 10111. When my father arrived, the man was still shouting racial slurs before driving off,” said the older brother.

The police never came on that evening but the family visited the police station the next day and opened a case.

Naidoo said that they plan to take the case further as one of his sons is a minor and this can be categorised as child abuse.

“The man is an adult and shouldn’t have taken advantage of people smaller and younger than himself. He should be setting a good example for the youngsters,” said the boys’ father.
