Police later confirmed that they were alerted to the incident at 11.10pm on 7 Dec and that they are investigating the case as one of voluntarily causing hurt.
The video clip shows the woman kicking and slapping the security guard, an older Indian woman. When the security guard refused to let her off even after the assault, the woman can be heard saying ‘I f***ing carry money’ before hurling more expletives at the security guard. The video also showed the the guard sustained bruises from the assault.
Isaac described the woman as being drunk and the one filming the incident can he heard saying ‘she will surely go to prison for this (assault)’. Two other men were in the video clip. One is seen desperately trying to intervene and protect the security guard from being assaulted. He was asking all parties to wait for the police to arrive. The other man in the video is the affected cabbie.
The Union of Security Employees (USE) also responded to the incident in its Facebook and said that it “expects all stakeholders to show respect to our security officers and reiterate that any form of abuse towards the officers is unacceptable.” USE further added that that the security officer works for one of its unionised agencies and that it has offered assistance to the company.
