A video has surfaced that shows a metro cop almost physically attacking a woman who apparently complained about a ticket. South Africans are shocked at the behaviour of the metro cop and say she was unprofessional.
ECRNewswatch shared a video on social media that shows a metro cop losing her cool and charging at a woman who it seems was complaining about a ticket she was issued.
In the video, the metro cop can be seen being held back by bystanders while she tries her best to grope at the woman filming the video.
The exact details of the incident are a little unclear, but it's obvious the metro cop had violence on her mind.
The incident took place in the Durban CBD in Dr Pixley KaSeme Street last week, and the video has since gone viral.
Briefly.co.za gathered that an investigation is underway into the behaviour of the metro cop.
South Africans were unsettled by the official's behaviour and voiced their concerns on social media, the platform to turn to these days:
Siphelele NelsonMandela Kallang That's how officers are.
Beverley Anne Christian As a police woman she should be able to restrain her emotions, behavior not acceptable
Nicholas Ablett Protect and serve, remember when that's what police used to do? Now it's 'Extort and Assault'
Thandeka Lewis Hawu it's shocking. There is no excuse for this behavior
