WATCH: Male police officer chokes woman without a face mask

A disturbing video from Melbourne, Australia — which is under a strict coronavirus lockdown — shows a woman being choked mercilessly by a male police officer for not wearing a face mask.

The video was reportedly shot by the victim’s boyfriend at around 5pm on Monday.

It shows the male police officer speaking to the girl without a face mask and then progressively choking her and throwing her to the ground even as she protests and repeatedly asks what she has done wrong.

The woman can be seen struggling on the ground in the video that has now gone viral on social media to almost universal opprobrium:

The incident follows a 'freedom rally' to protest the coronavirus lockdown in Melbourne on Sunday.

Melbourne residents have been ordered to mask up when they step out or face an AUD200 fine under severe lockdown restrictions.
