During a dispute outside Sainsbury’s, a police officer hit Gran in the face.
A GRANDMOTHER was allegedly punched to the ground by a police officer outside of a Sainsbury’s shop while her son was being arrested.
Colleen Murphy, 50, received a black eye as a result of the incident, which occurred at 9 p.m. on Saturday. As his crying children watched, Ms Murphy’s son was detained for drunk and disorderly behavior outside Sainsbury’s in Oldham, Greater Manchester.
Danielle Willisford, Ms Murphy’s daughter, told Manchester Evening News that her mother and cousin were turned away from the supermarket.
“My brother and I walked out with a couple beers and something for the kids to eat and we were told what had happened – they couldn’t go in and the cops showed up,” she explained.
“They came over, and my brother said, ‘OK, we’ve taken care of the matter, you don’t need to be here.’ When they claimed we were all forbidden, my brother said, “What do you mean I’m barred?” “I just came out of Sainsbury’s and we weren’t notified we were barred,” he continued.
“My brother approaches the security guard and asks, ‘Am I not barred?’ He entered Sainsbury’s, and the officer in the yellow shirt shouted, “You are barred, I just told you, you are barred,” to which my brother replied, “Will you just get out of my face, I’ve done nothing wrong.”
“Anyway, he grabbed him and flung him to the ground, and the rest is documented in the video.”
Police bat people away as they pin his head to the ground in the footage, which has now gone viral on social media.
Colleen Murphy (dressed in a long grey cardigan) approaches, and the officer rises and swings at her head before falling backwards.
Ms Willisford claims that her mother has a large lump on her head as well as a bruise on the side of her face.
Ms. Willisford’s brother was fined for being drunk and unruly, but she claims the children have been traumatized as a result.
“The children now don’t want to be connected with the police because they are terrified of them,” she explained. They were crying and admonishing one other not to hit folks like Grandma. It was revolting. They smacked her as if she were in a boxing ring. My mother was not deserving of such treatment. That shouldn’t be the case.
