George Petrov, a 23-year-old waiter who lives and works in Cardiff witnessed the alleged attack attempt when he was serving customers in a central hotel, close by to both the Principality Stadium and Cardiff Central train station.
Petrov told UNILAD:
I was walking and I saw a security guy pull the person from the car. He was holding a machete inside the car. The security guys saw him and stopped him. They pulled him out of the car and started hitting him.
George also claims he saw the man painting the faces of crowds who had gathered in the Welsh capital to see Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour.
The man, who was ‘terrified’ by the scenes, praised the police response, claiming they were on the scene in ‘about 20 seconds’.
A further video was taken at the scene:
