Another report of heavy-handedness by police officers enforcing the lockdown is being investigated, this time in Strand.
Journalist Murray Williams revealed the story on his Twitter page after a member of the public had sent him a video of the incident which apparently happened before 8am on Friday morning.
It shows police officers drag a mask-wearing woman into a police car after what looks like a verbal disagreement.
In a statement, Western Cape Police Commissioner Yolisa Matakata revealed the woman was released because detectives could find no basis for her to be charged.
The arresting officers are being investigated by a senior officer.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa said: “An investigation into the conduct of police officers who arrested a woman in Strand on Friday morning has been instituted. Once the probe has been finalised the outcome will be made known.”
