A video of an altercation between a metro police officer and a motorist on Dr Pixley Kaseme Street in Durban has gone viral on social media.

In the video, posted on Thursday, the officer is seen writing up a traffic ticket when a woman believed to be the vehicle's driver approaches saying: "People must see this."

The female officer then charges towards her in an attempt to grab the cellphone used to record the video.

A bystander then intervenes.  

eThekwini metro police spokesperson Senior Superintendent Parboo Sewpersad said he was aware of the video and that they were waiting for the complainant to come forward. 

"We have also seen this go viral and the incident has not yet been reported to us. We are waiting for a report to come to us," he told News24.

Sewpersad added that he is also part of the Internal Investigative Unit of Metro Police and that "nothing has come to me, and I'm waiting for that information". 

Attempts to reach the motorist have so far been unsuccessful.
