A police officer reportedly called his wife to beat up a lady after an argument with him, shortly after assault victim was stopped while trying to park her car in the yard at her boyfriend’s place.
The lady identified as Matshidiso Motsoeneng from Thokoza, Ekurhuleni, South Africa who spoke to Daily Sun, said she did not know the man was a traffic cop, because he was wearing casual clothes and driving an old BMW 325.
“He stopped next to me and started yelling at me. I thought he was a thug because of the way he was swearing and the car that he was driving.”
The lady who said she told her sister about the incident and also described the man to him, was told that he was a cop by her sister who suggested they go to his house and settle the matter in a civilised way.
“When we got there my sister greeted him nicely and he responded well. But when he saw me, he started getting aggressive,” said Matshidiso.
According to her, it was during this second argument that the police officer called his wife to beat her up. The lady further alleged that the police officer threatened people who tried to intervene.
Police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubele who confirmed the incident, said the cop and his wife appeared in court on Wednesday and will appear again soon.
