Airport spokesperson Leigh Gunkel-Keuler said in a statement on Wednesday that the elderly man had sustained head injuries. The altercation took place on Sunday a week ago at 10.12am‚ apparently over a parking space in front of the airport terminal building. Punches were thrown‚ while airport security attempted to separate them.
Last week‚ Uber SA confirmed that the man who was caught on CCTV camera beating the elderly man was one of their drivers. The driver’s access to the app was immediately suspended.
Police are investigating.
