The five men accused of assaulting a couple at a KFC drive-through in Montana will appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
They had allegedly attacked a black couple at a KFC drive-through in Montana in August.
After the first assault, which Van Rooyen said he was not part of, both the husband and wife allegedly began punching Muller.
A disturbing video of the assault which went viral on social media shows different men joining in the assault.
Accused Stephan Nel(39), Joshua Scholtz (21), DJ van Rooyen (21), Marius Harding, (23) and Ockert Muller (20)face charges of attempted murder, assault GBH and pointing a firearm.
A black woman can be heard shouting: “Are you going to hit me? Are you going to hit me?”Later the woman screamed: “Don’t hit my man!”
The accused stated that they did not know each other and did not act as one group. According to News24, Harding has had a few brushes with the law.
He was arrested in 2014 on charges of assault and crimen injuria for allegedly assaulting three petrol pump attendants and using racial slurs in the Free State.
Harding also faces a charge of theft in a separate case in KwaZulu-Natal.
