The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) has arrested a police officer in the Free State on a charge of attempted murder after he allegedly beat up his wife in a late-night argument.

He will appear in the Welkom magistrate’s court on Friday.

“The 42-year-old sergeant allegedly had an altercation with his 39-year-old wife when he started slapping her and this led to a fight.

“The wife sustained bruises and an open wound on the head,” Ipid said.

The fight allegedly took place at about midnight on Tuesday. The policeman was arrested the next day.
