"A case of common assault and damage to property has been opened by a motorist, who said Malema and three men assaulted him in a
street in Polokwane on Tuesday night," said spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.
The 22-year-old motorist alleged that he was cornered by a Mercedes Benz when he turned into the street.
The Mercedes Benz drove closely next to him, Hangwani said.
"The motorist said he hooted to the driver of the Mercedes to make him aware that he was too close to him, but to no avail.
The Mercedes then stopped in front of him," said Hangwani.
Three men got out of the Mercedes Benz, grabbed the motorist and manhandled him while shouting at him.
Malema allegedly got out of the Mercedes Benz and joined the three men.
"Malema allegedly slapped the 22-year-old and hit his car, it is not clear what object Malema used to hit the car.
The four men then got into their vehicle and drove away," he said.
Mulaudzi said the motorist could only recognise Malema.
Police are investigating.
