A woman, who has been identified as Thobekile Mbhele, has taken to social media to share with South Africa a harrowing experience she had while driving to go pick up her brother.

Mbhele posted a video, starting off a thread, which showed a white woman walking towards her car, cursing at her in Afrikaans.

The lady yells at Mbhele to "f**king drive" before slamming her door. However, the video cuts out and the scared young woman goes on by explaining what allegedly happened next.

"Today I got assaulted by this woman and her husband," she said, adding that the guy "stepped out of the passenger seat and came to my window and began beating me up".

Mbhele revealed that she was on her way to pick up her brother from church but had to stop at a red light on General Dan Pienaar Street next to Saint Andrews.

Briefly.co.za learned that Mbhele went on by claiming the woman's husband came to her window and started choking and punching her as she waited for the light to turn green.

"A man stepped out and he came to my window. My window was down but I didn’t do anything so I didn’t think anything was wrong. He immediately came to me and started choking me and punching me," she wrote.

Mbhele went on to explain that she started filming the instant he let go of her and that was when the wife walked towards her, yelling.

Mbhele revealed that another woman tried to stop the couple from abusing her, but the lady was visibly scared because the guy was "big".

The couple then tried to flee the scene but Mbhele managed to take a video of their car.

The terrified lady said she had no idea what prompted the alleged attack but she was left devastated - which can be clearly heard in a voice note she sent straight after the attack.

According to Mbhele, she said that a friend recognised the lady and she was able to track them down. However, she has not revealed whether or not she opened a case.
