Mr Mayen scratched one police officer’s eye as he struggled on the ground. He also scratched the other officer’s body and punched the officer in the head.
The man’s mother, Rosa Dut, was hit by pepper spray when she tried to intervene and pull the police officers off her son because she feared for his safety.
The response from the first officer afterwards, as captured in body-worn camera footage, was: “F— her. I was sprayed as well. I wasn’t f—ing complaining like she is.”
That officer also called Mr Mayen “a fucking dog” after the incident, as heard in body-worn camera footage.
While Brisbane Times knows the identities of the officers, they have not been named for legal reasons.
Presented with the officers’ comments, a Queensland Police Service spokesman said: “No complaints have been received in relation to the matter. Any complaint against a member of the QPS will be investigated.”
Mr Mayen pleaded guilty to all charges associated with the incident in October last year. These included seriously assaulting and obstructing police.
Ms Dut was charged with two counts each of assaulting police and obstructing police.
On Thursday, those four serious charges against Ms Dut were dropped in Ipswich Magistrates Court.
They were replaced the singular lesser charge of failing to obey a police direction, to which she pleaded guilty and was put on a good behaviour bond.
Lawyer Mike Henry, who represented Ms Dut on a pro bono basis, said in a statement his client should never have faced the four serious charges.
“The footage and the photographic evidence speaks for itself, and I would imagine that any reasonable person would be deeply troubled by what the evidence demonstrates or tends to suggest,” he said.
“Rosa took great pride in her job as school cleaner and she was a valued member of her school community for many years.
“The financial prejudice and uncertainty faced her because of the effective suspension of her Blue Card has forced her hand and she felt she had little choice [but to plead guilty to the lesser charge] in the end.”
The QPS spokesman said the four serious charges against Ms Dut were withdrawn and replaced because she acted “in a highly emotional state” at the time.
“[She] was intervening not to attack police herself, or to facilitate her son’s assault on police, but in an unreasonable state of belief that he required assistance,” he said.
In a statement, the Dut-Mayen family said: “We are glad that this ordeal is nearly over, hopefully Rosa will have her Blue Card reissued soon and she can work with children again.”
