The father of the alleged victim, who apparently had her jaw broken in two separate places, took to social media to vent his anger over the incident.
“My daughter's jaw was broken in two places at Rehab Nightclub,” he wrote.
CINews has been told the female victim is also suffering from psychological injuries following the assault.
“Now my daughter doesn't know all the beautiful family and friends she has,” wrote the victim’s father.
However, the police spokesperson says no report was made to the police service at the time of the incident.
The police officer was off duty at the time of the alleged incident.
“Any claims made against a police officer – or any other person, cannot be substantiated at all, as yet.
“Following the claims posted on Facebook, the police officer identified in a photograph as being involved has been interviewed as part of an investigation into the alleged fight.
“He and one other person have provided helpful information about the night,” said the spokesperson.
Although the spokesperson claims “the police treat such incidents with seriousness,” CINews has been told the officer is still active on the CIPD roster, having avoided suspension pending the outcome of the investigation into the alleged assault.
Earlier this year, another police officer was discharged without conviction after assaulting a female family member. The decision was seen as being highly controversial at the time, with prominent lawyer Wilkie Rasmussen questioning whether there was one law for all or whether it was “different” for some people.
The police spokesperson says no complaint has yet been made. However, he has confirmed the CIPD is still looking into the alleged incident.
