Shocking moment police officer 'repeatedly hits woman holding a CHILD in Norwich pub'
CCTV footage from The Nelson pub in Norwich has been shared on social media, with Norfolk Constabulary's Professional Standards Department launching an investigation.
Cops can be seen in the footage, which was taken on March 27, arresting three women – including one who is holding a child while sitting down.
The officer appears to hit her repeatedly.
After she retaliates, he strikes her again before the child is taken away by another woman.
She is then arrested, however the officer's alleged conduct has led to widespread criticism on social media.
One user said: "What gives them the right to do that and to a woman with a child in her arms?"
Norfolk Constabulary said in a statement: “We are aware of a video that is currently circulating on social media which shows officers making arrests in a pub in Norwich.
“The video footage forms part of an active criminal investigation concerning the individuals being arrested.
“It has also been referred internally to the constabulary’s Professional Standards Department, who will review the contents of the video.”
