An armed police officer has been captured on video wrestling with, and ruthlessly assaulting a woman in a bank despite the mother holding a little child in her arm.
The circumstances surrounding the assault are not immediately known but the muscled officer is seen ferociously hitting the helpless woman with an umbrella and then repeatedly punching and slapping her in the face as though he were in a boxing duel with a worthy opponent.
Despite the punches and slaps, the poor woman held on tightly to her child until a man in the bank wrenched the baby out of her grip so the child could be taken out of harm’s way.
The officer did not give the slightest thought to the risk of his gun, slaps and blows hitting the little child in the melee but kept punching the woman with careless abandon.
But for the exit of the mother through the bank door, the officer had readied the butt of his gun to hit her face.
Though details about the incident are sketchy, it appeared it had to do with some GHS250, since a voice in the video kept saying he would pay the amount.
The woman was seen shouting amidst desperate attempt to free herself from the grips of the officer.
It is unclear what triggered the assault.
The policeman whose assault of a nursing mother in a banking hall has gone viral, Friday, has been arrested, Myjoyonline.com has learnt.
Frederick Amanor Skalla, is currently at the Police Headquarters awaiting possible prosecution for indecent assault.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, Skalla, was seen virtually punching and slapping a nursing mother in a banking hall.
Reports suggest the woman, who is yet to be identified, had gone to the Midland Savings and Loans to withdraw an amount of money.
She, however, reported a little late after banking hours and was asked to leave. The woman who was clutching to her baby is reported to have pleaded with the bank officials to allow her cash her money.
For daring to appeal, Frederick Amanor Skalla, was asked to send her out of the banking hall and he did that in Rambo-style.
Starting with an umbrella, the policeman hit the woman and her baby several times in the head before he started slapping and punching her.
Not even the tears of the weeping child will stop the policeman from continuing with his assault. He pummeled the lady and threw him out of the banking hall.
