Gauteng police are investigating another case of assault related to road rage, in Pretoria, it was reported on Friday. Just recently there was another case in Joburg.
The charge comes after a 65-year-old man was allegedly punched in the face several times by Apostolos “Paul” Maroulis, Eyewitness News reports.
The 65-year-old man, Jan Swart, allegedly bumped his car into Maroulis’s white Audi at the intersection of Louis and Atterbury roads in Pretoria.
In a video, Maroulis launches into a foul-mouthed rant at Swart, calling him a “fucking mad poes” and promising to “fucking push you again”.
Swart accuses Maroulis of assaulting him, a charge that Maroulis denied. Another motorist has however backed up Swart’s claim, EWN said.
The incident comes after a road rage case in Johannesburg last weekend. Gregory Kleinhentz, a Porsche driver, punches a Polo driver on Witkoppen Road.
The Polo driver told eNCA: “I was driving behind him and he was cutting off people left, right, and centre. So I went closer to see what kind of a Porsche it was and the passenger threw a can out the window at me.
“Then he threw another can, and it hit my car. So I hooted, flipped him the finger and asked what the hell he thought he was doing.
“He damaged my tracking device and stuffed up my side mirror. It all happened so fast I didn’t even have a chance to think.”
