Flabbergasted hardly begins to describe how Westville policemen felt when they were called in by Pavilion security personnel in the early hours of yesterday to investigate some acrobatic antics in a parked vehicle.

They found themselves confronting a very red-faced Metro cop, but not before having to put the pedal to the metal in a pursuit as the suspect and his woman friend sought to avoid becoming the talk of the town.

The top metro cop, who begged to remain anonymous, was seemingly overcome by his amorous feelings for his paramour, and the two repaired to his parked car in the parking lot of the Pavilion.

Oblivious to the end-of-month crowds, they were apparently also blind to the security cameras that monitor the parking lots at the centre.

The Sunday Tribune’s source (who unsurprisingly, also asked for anonymity) said the pair of love birds were picked up on CCTV monitors about midnight.

Security officers called in members of the SAPS Westville branch, but when they approached the car, the driver shot off into the night.

A chase ensued through the suburbs of Westville.

The police briefly lost sight of their target, but spotted the car at 1.45am.

The two, now fully dressed, were issued with a caution, after which they parted ways, with the metro policeman’s companion leaving in a second car.

The source said that while both parties were married, they had been keeping each other’s company for some time, unbeknown to their spouses. – Sunday Tribune Reporter
