Cape Town - In the light of two court cases linked to racial assaults, a Cape Town nightclub risks being shut down for failing to curb drunken and disorderly behaviour of its patrons.
The incidents, which allegedly involve patrons of Tiger Tiger nightclub at Stadium on Main in Claremont, spurred district State prosecutor Nathan Johnson to take the club’s managers to task.
“If these types of incidents keep happening, they can lose their liquor licence and be shut down,” he said.
One of the cases involves Chad De Matos, 19, Aaron Mack, 20, and Mitchell Turner, 20, who are charged with attempted murder, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and crimen injuria after a cleaner at Stadium on Main, Delia Adonis, was brutally attacked and racially assaulted in front of her teenage son.
The attack took place in the parking lot on October 17. The other case involves Djavan Arrigone, 19, a UCT student who allegedly urinated on taxi driver Michelle Puis Nomgcana from the balcony of the nightclub on January 24.
