"Before posting, please give us background information first. Judging by the high breathing of the person taking a video, there's either a serious violation or something that happened before. Cops don't do this for mahala."
"A woman is smacked across the face by a police officer and some people want the full story. Why am I acting surprised?"

In other news making headlines, Briefly News previously reported that a shop owner was robbed in Brakpan and the ugly incident was caught on camera. In the viral video footage, a shop owner is seen helping his customers as they buy a few items.
In the clip, there are three guys in the shop and the one wearing a red shirt and white hat is standing in front of the owner, who is serving him.
However, when he is done with the transaction, he snatches a phone belonging to the shop owner and runs away in seconds. The owner also tried to chase him but it seems he failed to recover the stolen phone.
