NELSPRUIT – The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Semakaleng Manamela has called on the public to be tolerant of each other as well as not use violence to resolve differences.

This comes after five suspects, Dean Venter 29, Frank van Meyeren 36, Jonathan Vermuelen 41, Sonia van Meyeren 47 and Johannes Vermeulen 50, were captured on video, which is making rounds online, allegedly assaulting a man who has since opened a case of assault with an intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH). The suspects were all arrested last week on 29 and 30 June 2021 respectively.

According to information received, a 27-year-old man who is a victim in this matter, allegedly confronted one of the suspects, Sonia van Meyeren, after she reversed her vehicle and allegedly bumped his car. An argument ensued between the two thereafter, the suspect is said to have made a phone call. Moments later, four men arrived at the scene and severely assaulted the victim.
