I entered my car with my son, and all of a sudden about 8 of their players came hitting on my windscreen and climbing on my car with stones and trying to open the door while accusing me of filming for the opposite side.
Two climbed my burnet and one eventually succeeded in destroying my wheel screen.
I had to pursue them with my car, thats how I escaped, most importantly ensure my son was in a safe place.
Thank God I have a little video of the incident and very soon they will hear from me”. She said.
