Some have criticised the police for not arresting the rowdy man, but others in support of the cops say that since they didn’t see the woman getting hit it’s not right for them to make any arrest.
The latter group’s stance appears to be more in tune with the law, in which police can only effect an arrest for Voluntary Causing Hurt if they witness the incident.
If not, the victim will have to lodge a police report to kick start further investigations.
