A police report has been lodged by the Union of Security Employees (USE) over a video clip which showed two security officers being assaulted.
The video, which was circulated widely online, showed a man believed to be a security manager slapping and punching one of the guards. When the other guard tried to stop the manager, he was similarly assaulted.
The union said it visited the security guards to offer its assistance, but the guards declined to speak about the incident.
“Officers of USE visited the security officers on duty at the site of incident to offer assistance. Despite the security officers declining to speak to the union, we informed the security officers that they can contact the union if they change their minds,” the union said on its Facebook page.
The union’s president has lodged a police report to ask the police to investigate the matter, it added.
“USE expects all stakeholders to show respect to our security officers. Any form of abuse towards the officers is unacceptable to the union and we will help the victims to the best of our ability,” it said.
