Social media was left gobsmacked this week after a video of an unidentified woman trashing a Captiec bank in Cape Town while running around in her birthday suit went viral.
In the 29-second video, the woman can be seen hopping from one workstation to the next as shocked bystanders and employees appear to get out of her path of destruction. While there’s no official word as to the reason for her losing her cool, News24 reports that the incident was sparked by a declined loan application, along with claims that the distressed woman was deeply indebted despite paying for an extended period, causing her to see red.
However, Capitec Bank has stayed mum on the matter releasing a generic comment via their social media platforms.
“Hi there, we at Capitec are as perplexed by this matter which happened at the Strand branch, as everyone else. We are trying to get to the bottom of this. [sic]”
The banking institution did indicate that the woman behaved in a similar manner in adjacent shops/restaurants, reports IOL.
According to Western Cape police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk, Strand police have opened a malicious damage to property case, with the 41-year-old woman arrested for causing physical destruction in the branch.
While there has been major speculation around the mental state of the woman, it is still unclear as to what led up to the incident.
