CCTV footage has been released by Spur showing the altercation where a mother was threatened with a “klap” by a fellow diner during a heated argument over their children at the weekend.
Video footage of the altercation at Texamo Spur – in The Glen Shopping Centre in Johannesburg – on Sunday went viral on social media and the food chain was sharply criticised for the way it was handled.
Lebohang Mabuya‚ who was threatened by a father at the restaurant during an argument over the behaviour of their children‚ told The Times that his behaviour was “intimidating and disrespectful”.
The Spur Corporation, which on Wednesday issued an unequivocal apology, released the CCTV footage which shows the man grabbed her child.
“We reviewed our CCTV footage of the incident and can confirm that Ms Mabuya’s version of events is accurate‚” said a statement issued by Spur.
Spur also acknowledged that the staff and management of the store ‘did not sufficiently assist’ the mother and that this was being addressed.
