Victoria Police’s video of arresting a woman for not having a face mask on Melbourne Street has gone viral on social media.
On Monday afternoon, two police officers on Wellington Lane, in Collingwood, attempted to surround the young woman.
She was charged, suspected to be for not wearing a mask, which is in breach of Stage 4 Chief Health Officers instructions.
The woman appears to struggle when she is seized by the male cop, and then forced against a wall.
“You’re choking me,” she yells and repeatedly swears at the officer.
“What the f*** are you doing to me? What have I done? What have I done?”
A relative of the woman who recorded the arrest informs police she has a personal reason not to wear a mask.
Only a few minutes more officers come as the cop pins the woman to the ground, where she is handcuffed.
Footage of the arrest had been shared overnight to social media.
