South African Police Lieutenant Moatshe Ngoepe said the suspects allegedly argued with the man before collecting oranges and throwing them at him.

The man had no visible injury but was declared dead at the scene suggesting he may have suffered "blunt force trauma."

Police and prosecutors are now awaiting the results of an autopsy before they can bring any criminal charges.
