Case opened against ‘abusive’ officer.

The mother of a 14-year-old boy who was allegedly assaulted by members of Law Enforcement is outraged after a video of the attack went viral on social media.

Kyle Lucas of Mitchells Plain had been visiting Westridge Park with two friends, aged 12 and 13, on 5 March when the alleged attack took place.

The boys were accused of breaking a window of the men’s toilet and were taken to the security office at the premises.

The Grade 9 pupil’s mother has since opened a case of assault with police and says her son is traumatised.

Richard Bosman, the City’s Executive Director for Safety and Security, is aware of the video and is calling for an investigation and possible disciplinary action.


The cop begins smacking Kyle hard in the face saying he is an older child.

“Uncle, why did you release them, uncle, they did throw it,” he pleads.

The cop replies: “You f***ing old man, you f***ing old man” and gives the boy two taai klappe in the face.

He continues to smack the boy, saying: “Why must we beg you?”

Another person also beats him while the officer shouts: “You don’t come to this park again.”
