A few moments later, the eyewitnesses decided to calm down the security guards who did not seem to have any intention of stopping the attack on the trike driver.
As the security guards continued to attack the driver, another guard arrived to calm down the situation. Several citizens also tried to help by getting in between the violent guards and the badly beaten up trike driver.
