Johannesburg – After being attacked at a casino on Thursday 16 June, Live Amp producer Marvin Cohen is lucky to be alive. 

Marvin posted a graphic image on Instagram of wounds he obtained to his neck, after an altercation he was involved in turned violent. 

Explaining what happened, the producer said, “Last week Thursday I went out to #Cantare at @monetcasino to celebrate one of my boys birthdays.” 

He admits to having a fun night up until he was asked for help by a group of girls. “On my way out to the parking lot I ran into a group of girls in the elevator. We got to talking and they told me they are not comfortable going home with the guys they had been drinking with and asked if I could help and get their stuff out of these guys car.” 

Marvin says that his attackers were set off when the women refused to leave with them after they had spent the entire night buying them drinks. It was once he tried to calm the situation down that the onslaught began. 

“They jumped me, I tried to run when they got weapons out the car but they caught me and attacked me pretty badly. The guards eventually stepped in and picked me up off of one of the guys I was wrestling with on the ground and put me in the elevator, he said I was cut badly.” 

After ending up in hospital with stitches on his neck, Marvin says he has opened a case of attempted murder against his attackers. 

Even though his night didn’t go as planned, he hopes that both men and women have taken something away from his horrific story. 

“I’m telling this story as a warning to be vigilant about who you drink with and to guys, you can’t expect women to sleep/leave with you just because you bought them drinks. We need to start respecting the word NO.”

Last week Thursday I went out to #Cantare @montecasino to celebrate one of my boys birthdays. Lots of fun was had. Good times. All good things obviously need to come to an end and I was leaving to go home. On my way out to the parking lot I ran into a group of girls in the elevator, we got to talking and they told me they are not comfortable going home with the guys they had been drinking with and asked if I could help and come with them get their stuff out of these guys car. I know I should've directed them to security but I agreed to help out. They approached the guys to get their stuff and the guys started becoming aggressive with them, they didn't want them to go anywhere because they had been buying them drinks all night. I stepped in and tried to calm the situation down by telling the two guys to chill, the girls didn't want to leave with them. They then jumped me, I tried to run when they got weapons out the car but they caught me and attacked me pretty badly. The guards eventually stepped in and picked me up off of one of the guys I was wrestling with on the ground and put me in the elevator, he said I was cut badly. They took me to the Monte ER area and bandaged me up then called an ambulance to take me to hospital. I opened up a case of attempted murder and the two guys were arrested on Tuesday morning back at Monte Casino again. They confessed to everything. Now we wait for the case to go to court. I'm telling this story as a warning to be vigilant about who you drink with and to guys, you can't expect women to sleep/leave with you just because you bought them drinks. We need to start respecting the word NO. Stop being assholes. We bringing our whole gender down. #IThankGodImAlive #JusticeWillBeServed #SayNoToRape
