Forced to walk on broken glass for lack of money!

04 March 2016, 17:26

Johannesburg - Thugs looking to loot a tuck shop have caused irreparable damage to a man after they made him walk barefoot over broken glass, Daily Sun has reported.

The attack, which took place on Monday at an informal settlement in Johannesburg, South Africa, started when thugs stormed Lucky Zifo's tuck shop in search of money. 

After being informed that he could not give them the amount of cash they were looking for, the criminals became infuriated and began breaking bottles on the floor of the shop. Holding a gun to Lucky's head, the men then made him walk over the shards barefoot.

While helping themselves to various goods in the shop, the thugs left Lucky bleeding and helpless.

Lucky was rushed to hospital soon after the attack, where the glass was removed from his soles.

He has been unable to walk ever since the attack and now fears that the criminals will make a return visit.

Thugs had previously stolen the man's van and he fears his life may be next on the line.
