She said the man and his accomplices left after her cousin managed to fight them off.
“My cousin does kickboxing so she fought him off while they were trying to take her phone too. There were four men altogether.”
Farista said she has minor injuries to her stomach, foot and hand, and that there were no police available to help her or to report the incident to.
After the men ran away, the three women moved into the Sasol garage, where crowds of people were standing and waiting for taxis.
