Police are investigating a case of attempted murder after a security guard was run over in a hit and run incident at a shopping centre, in Stellenbosch.
Western Cape Police spokesperson, FC van Wyk, says the security officer was on duty
in the parking area where he was directing traffic, when he was run over.
He says the guard was directing a white bakkie that was driving in the wrong direction, when the vehicle knocked him over and drove straight over him.
Van Wyk says the guard was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. A video of the incident has since gone viral on social media.
