Cop Assaulted Wife For Not Wishing Him On Valentines Day

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) is looking into a case involving a police officer who allegedly assaulted his wife for failing to wish him a Happy Valentine's Day.

While many people around the world celebrated with lavish displays of affection, this was not the case for all. It is claimed that on Monday, 14 February 2022, at approximately 22:00, the complainant was at her residence when her husband called her and began an argument about why she did not say Happy Valentine's Day.


According to IPID spokesperson Grace Langa, the complainant informed her husband that she would be working on Valentine's Day, and her husband then hung up the phone.

On Tuesday, May 15, 2022, around 17:00, the husband returned home and began arguing with the complainant once more. He went on to ask why she didn't put him on her WhatsApp status for Valentine's Day. He "the husband" then became aggressive and removed the SIM cards from both of her cellphones, as well as the phones themselves, claiming that they were purchased with his money.

"As they continued to argue, the suspect became more aggressive and assaulted the complainant." The complainant was injured when she fell and broke her leg.

The suspect then locked the complainant inside the house and left, but the complainant was able to escape through the garage door and went to the police station to file a report. She was taken to the hospital."
