A Victoria Police officer is in line for a bravery award, after Commissioner Shane Patton recognised him for pepper spraying a prone grandmother on the weekend.
First Constable Mark Jenkins will receive the highest honour available to Victoria Police officers, after knocking down and pepper spraying a grandmother at anti-lockdown protests during the weekend.
“This man’s heroic efforts against the elderly will not be forgotten,” Patton said.
“Pepper spraying a prone grandmother after knocking her to the ground is an amazing act of courage and should not go unrewarded.”
The award will be given at a ceremony later this month.
