Neighbours' feud turns violent

Neighbours' feud turns violent

GEORGE NEWS - Ongoing conflict between neighbours in Wilderness turned violent over the weekend and ended up in yet another court case between them.
 
A husband and wife who live in one of the six houses at the old railway station in Wilderness were violently assaulted, allegedly by their neighbours (a mother and daughter, and a male friend). The couple had to be taken to hospital for medical care.
 
All parties appeared in the George Magistrate's Court on Monday after they had laid charges against each other.
 
According to the police, a confrontation between the neighbours led to a fight on Saturday that left the couple bruised and bloodied.
 
Lieutenant Annacletta Mothoalo, George Police communication officer, said the couple had gone to the police station to lay a charge of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH) against their neighbours.
 
"The suspects in the assault GBH case also opened a counter case against the couple for common assault and malicious damage to property of a cellphone. All of them were arrested and appeared in court."
 
The George Herald was told in court on Monday that the feud between the neighbours, who lease the houses from Transnet, has been coming on for more than three years and over this period they have laid more than 30 charges against each other. Several protection orders have also been granted to all parties. It is unsure whether any of the protection orders are still valid.
