This incident was reported by Illeani Pieterse on Facebook. Below is her statement of the ordeal and also pictures to back up her claims.
“This is the constable from Sinoville Police station who brutally assaulted me yesterday because she is so racist and swearing at me as she and the officer in the other picture tried to force me to hand my cellphone over to them as they treated us, the ones who actually contacted them to come and remove 2 Zimbabwe guys from our premises who was threatening me and my husband.
Upon their arrival they did not even get out of their bakkie and requested us to get the 2 guys out of the yard to speak to them
My word were they not suppose to get out and do their job?
They had the worst attitudes and were all very racist. I started taking pictures and made a video and the one male came to me and wanted to threatened to assualt me to give him my cellphone.
As I refused and told him this is my property and my phone the lady constable got out of the bakkie and assualted me. I have a serious back problem with rods in and have epilepsy. My seizures starts immediately when I get anxious. She made so many racist remarks and was swearing and hit me and grabbed me and threw me on the ground trying to get my cellphone.
At that time I had hidden my cellphone in my bra. When my step son warned her to get off me and leave the yard she left shouting and insulting white people. I am not leaving this and will proceed to make use of all forums and legal remedies available to me. How can people like this be in a police uniform to serve and protect the public? I want answers and justice. “
