Couple to appear in court following road rage incident


Two suspects, a couple aged 36 and 48, were arrested and given a warning to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrates’ Court on 8 October 2019 for common assault.

This follows an incident where a 19-year-old medical student at the University of Free State was attacked by the couple in an alleged road rage incident on Sunday, 15 September 2019. The victim shared the ordeal on Twitter, describing what had allegedly occurred.

The victim was apparently on the way to fetch her brother from a church in Heuwelsig when the two pounced on her in General Dan Pienaar Road,  Bloemfontein.
