Four police officers in trouble for “assaulting” women who rejected their advances

In Summary

  • Four police officers have been charged for allegedly assaulting women who rejected their advances.
  • CCTV footage captures them running after the women and firing at them, where one fell instantly.

Four police officers are facing charges of assault and intent to inflict harm on four women who allegedly rejected their advances.

During their hearing today at Bellville Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town, South Africa, the four suspects were released with a warning.

The September 25 incident saw Ntuthuko Dladla, Francious Monyai, James Mokitle and Setlole Motabogi pass by a group of women friends in a white unmarked vehicle, who they greeted.

CCTV Footage exposes officers

Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) Spokesperson Grace Langa says CCTV footage along the street showed the officers stopping, before a push and pull ensued.

“One had apparently asked the women if they wanted to take a ride with them and after the friends declined and questioned why they had stopped, the officers got out of the white unmarked vehicle,” news outlet News24 says.

The four women fled, although one of the officers caught one, who managed to break free.

A second officer fired at the women, causing one to fall instantly. Reports indicate they used rubber bullets, which left her injured in the stomach.

“Fortunately, it was not a deep wound. We are thankful for her life,” Langa adds.

The suspects were released on a warning, as they await their next hearing on February 16, 2022.
