Police extortion: Cops’ assault caught on tape


The Sandton police station is under fire – yet again. Now, two police officers are to be investigated for alleged physical assault, attempted extortion and wrongful arrest of a Bryanston resident.

CCTV footage of the incidents show Ashley Cerqueira being pulled over not once, but twice by the same police vehicle within 14 seconds. Two police officers forcefully drag him from his car and pepper-spray him twice.

His alleged crime? Dagga in his vehicle, despite video footage showing that a search of the car turned up nothing in spite of police producing a bag of dagga at the police station later.

This is one of numerous incidents of alleged police corruption in the area in the past six months, and crime forum eBlockwatch is calling on the public to report incidents so that formal cases can be opened against the Sandton police station.
