In a shocking video of the incident, the 47-year-old can be seen headbutting Simphiwe Mntunani, 34, who works at the former sports star’s apartment complex in Woodstock.
The Samora Machel man says Dalton also called him a “monkey” and fears returning to work.
Police spokesperson FC van Wyk says cops are investigating a common assault case but no arrests have yet been made.
The incident happened last Monday around 2am.
Simphiwe explains: “He parked his car and came to me. He looked at my phone and said I am the reason his car was broken into a year ago.”
Simphiwe said he tried explaining that he was not working at the complex when the incident happened.
“He got angry and started swearing at me. He said that we black securities are useless and I responded that he should hire white ones.
“That’s when he came close and headbutted me unexpectedly and told me he was rich, well connected and there was nothing I could do,” he said.
Simphiwe said he did not report the incident until one of his colleagues saw the security camera footage and asked him about it.
“I was scared, he is famous and has money. I am just a security guard. My boss also sent me the footage and said I must press charges.”
Simphiwe was advised to approach the EFF, who assisted with opening the case.
EFF provincial chairperson Melikhaya Xhego said: “The EFF calls for the immediate arrest of Dalton for crimen injuria and assaulting Mntunani.
“We also call for Dalton to be investigated for not keeping to social distancing when addressing Mntunani at a time when the government is calling for social distancing between individuals.”
When the Daily Voice called Dalton on Monday, a female answered, saying “you have the wrong number”.
However, the mobile number’s WhatsApp profile picture was that of Dalton.
Dalton, known as “Bullet”, played for the Boks from 1994 to 2002.
He was part of the 1995 World Cup winning squad
In 2017, he was arrested in Sea Point and charged with assault for an attack on a security guard, reckless or negligent driving, crimen injuria and resisting arrest.
In 2007, Dalton was accused of trying to suffocate his wife Andrea in a bath in November 2007. He also faced an assault charge, but both cases were withdrawn.
