Sea Point resident allegedly attacked by members of the police

"Before I knew it they were gone, I jumped in my car and I drove home. When I got home I realised that they had taken R500 out of my wallet."

Graham Westcott, a resident of Sea Point in Cape Town, says he was attacked by two members of the police on Monday.

While speaking to Cape Talk’s Kieno Kammies Westcott said the attack took place around 2:30am on Monday morning.

He was coming back from a friend’s place, after dinner.

“I was walking back to my car. My car was parked in Sea Point and as I crossed the main road, there was a police van facing towards Camps Bay.”

He says as he walked towards his car, at the corner of his eye he saw the police van circle and turn to follow him down the road.

“And before I knew it, two officers jumped out and started assaulting me. They threw me up against the wall, grabbed me by the throat, pulled all my possessions out my pockets, they took my car keys and then accused me of all sorts of things.”

Wescott says it happened so fast, he was however not injured during the assault.

“Before I knew it they were gone, I jumped in my car and I drove home. When I got home I realised that they had taken R500 out of my wallet.”

Wescott said he is expecting a call from the station commander from the Sea Point police station so that he can give them his statement.
