Limpopo police confirmed on Wednesday that an officer who was caught on video assaulting a teenager in Vaalwater was suspended.
Regional spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said an internal investigation was launched after a video of the assault surfaced.
“After having viewed the video footage, the Provincial Commissioner took it upon himself to suspend the member.”
The policeman had been called to arrest the suspect, who was allegedly drunk and causing trouble at a local shebeen.
The policeman appeared in the Modimolle Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on an assault charge and is expected to return to the dock in May.
