Makhubela said that a firearm was drawn and used to intimidate the couple.
In the video a man can be heard repeatedly yelling “Skiet hom” [shoot him].
Makhubela said that the couple was receiving trauma counseling and that he could not comment on the extent of their injuries.
“The four men were charged with assault and intimidation with a dangerous weapon. They appeared before the Pretoria North Magistrates court on Friday‚” said Makhubela.
The police are looking for any information that will lead to the whereabouts of the other two men.
According to news reports and posts on social media‚ the couple were attacked after they apparently requested the vehicle in front of them to move forward in the drive-through.
Police Minister Fikile Mbalula‚ posted the video on his Twitter account and called on the police to urgently investigate.
I’ve notified SAPS to attend to this with urgency. Sinoville Police are looking into it. https://t.co/ZntKL66Niz
