A security guard at a construction site on Hampshire Place in Pinetown was found beaten and tied up in a porter loo by his employers this morning.
The man in his 30’s is believed to have been approached by an unknown group of men some time last night after which he was allegedly assaulted and tied up. He was then placed in the porter loo, unable to free himself. Paramedics were immediately called as the man had suffered some injuries as a result of the alleged beating, and he was freezing cold after spending the night without much protection from the elements and the pouring rain outside.
He was treated by paramedics en route to a local hospital by ambulance.
Investigations are underway as to what exactly took place leading to the security guard being injured.
