Durban cops caught with prostitutes

2012-04-12 12:23
Johannesburg - Two Durban constables have been arrested after being caught with prostitutes in their marked police panel van, according to a report on Thursday.

Dog unit metro officers walked up to the van in Clairwood, Durban, around 01:00 on Monday and saw a man in the front seat with a woman crouched on the floor, the Star newspaper reported.

The man pulled out a firearm and tried to drive over the metro police officer before speeding away. A chase ensued.

When the van stopped and the woman tried to run away, the metro officers fired a warning shot and ordered the driver to surrender, but he refused. A police dog was set on him.

According to the report it was only then that the officers noticed another man in the back of the van with another prostitute.

Although they were arrested and taken to a police station, the officers there refused to register them because the practice of free sex with prostitutes - known in police circles as 'num-num' - was common.

A docket was opened two days later.
