"Then this police man who I assumed was already high on drug or something started shouting that y must I tell him that , I was first shocked and trying to understand where the sudden shout came from and he immediately started saying , you must be mad and all the curses on his mouth . It was 1am in the morning , and the only thing I could do was try to reach out to my phone while he was still shouting . Immediately he saw my phone , he forcefully tried to take it from me , I quickly put the phone under my skirt and the police put his hands right under my skirt and took the phone.
