A man allegedly tried to drive his car into the News Cafe Rosebank Mall after being denied entry by the bouncers. He reportedly arrived there to see his ex-girlfriend, who did not want to see him. The car damaged several parked vehicles on Cradock and Tyrwhitt Avenue.
A witness, @ItsLithaAfter9, in some posts on Twitter, shared the details of the incident, saying it seems to be a pile-up of vehicles that were crashed; she warned patrons to be careful.
Someone at Rosebank Mall just drove their call into the News Cafe clearly trying to injure someone. One of the scariest moments of my life having to be pulled away to avoid being knocked by this guy ? hope everyone is okay and safe.
