Two policemen with truncheons approached and apprehend a man and a woman who captured everything on camera. It looks like they arrived on an unmarked vehicle and took the detained man into it. They threatened him with the use of force would he refused to come with them. When asked why they arrest him the police officer answered "For identification". They refused to say their names or present documents even when asked multiple times and took the detained woman to a police car with a number #466 on its doors. After they put the woman into the car they proceed to quickly drive away. People outside screamed, "For what!?".
