A witness claimed that the cops began assaulting the man outside a house in Emerald Crescent.

“They hit him until he went to the floor then carried on beating him with batons even when he was down,” the witness said.

WARNING: THE VIDEO CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE

According to the Fish Hoek Community Forum, two members of its executive committee went to the station to check up on the man’s well-being.

“The CPF was denied access to visit the arrested individual in the cells in order to establish their well-being, SAPS members on duty refused to take the social media post and video of the incident into evidence, and physically ejected both CPF members from the station. A complaint will be made and we will continue to follow up on the original incident,” the CPF said.
