Cape Town - A young man is lucky to be alive after he was attacked by a group of men who drove over him after viciously beating him at a petrol station shop.
Marius Zeeman, 29, of Bothasig, had been at a party on Friday night and stopped at the Shell Garage on Old Paarl Road, Blackheath, to buy cigarettes.
Marius left the shop and got inside his Nissan Almera when he was approached by the group of eight men who began kicking and jumping on his vehicle.
“I got into the car and had just lit my cigarette when these guys came out of nowhere and began jumping on the bonnet and the others kicked it,” he explains.
“I got out and asked them to please stop and didn’t know why they were doing it.
