He realised that a rock had shattered his windscreen and immediately stopped the vehicle. The victim together with his passengers saw the suspect fleeing. They gave chase and managed to apprehend him.

Mayville police were immediately contacted and a case of malicious damage to property was registered. Following preliminary investigations the accused was linked to another two rock throwing cases reported at Mayville SAPS. He made several court appearances before he was sentenced.
