It is unclear what the man was being arrested for but the footage shows how he was man handled, stripped naked and then assaulted. The individual who was filming the event from their mobile phone tried to intervene by shouting through her office window, questioning the police officer in concern about how they were handling the suspect. The policeman then allegedly threatened her by pointing to the back of his police van and starting making way towards her location. We do know that one person was arrested for intervening, throughout the video you hear people asking “Nicole” to stop intervening however she took a brave stand against police brutality and this is a perfect example of what we as citizens should be doing.
Cape Town has a very bad record of police brutality and there has been many incidents like these in the past. I am desperately trying to get hold of the person who filmed this for an interview, stay tuned.
