WATCH | East Londoners help woman being beaten in CBD


East London residents were quick to rescue a woman who was being assaulted by an unknown man in the CBD on Monday morning.
According to a bystander Momelezi Shenxane, the two were quarreling for some time in Cambridge Street before the man rushed to his car and came back with a homemade stick.
"The woman was swearing at him and he just lost it and started beating her up with the stick. He kept on saying she is being disrespectful and would not tolerate her nonsense."
A DispatchLIVE reporter at the scene observed the commotion as it came to an end, with about seven people stopping the feud. The stick was taken and the man was taken to the police station. #16daysOfActivism..
