Police are investigating an incident at a Wimpy restaurant in Mooinooi in North West province where a young teenage boy was accused of harassing a small girl in the men’s toilets.
Famous Brands, the owners of Wimpy, confirmed to TimeLIVE that the incident had occurred at their Mooinooi branch on election day; and police have confirmed the matter is under investigation.
A video of a confrontation that ensued between the boy, appearing to be in his early teens, a woman and the mother of the girl who was found in the toilet, has gone viral on social media.
TimesLIVE has chosen not to show the video as it involves minors.
The two-and-a-half-minute-long video shows the woman gripping the boy by the arm, who insists he did nothing wrong.
“She asked me to do it,” the boy is heard saying in his defence.
“To do what?” the woman asks him.
“To kiss her!” he cries.
Some patrons can be seen in the background, looking on as the scene unfolds.
