Later that same day, police officers allegedly found the boxer and his friends breaking the national Covid-19 curfew, which applies from 22h00.

 

Upon instructions to go home, Jonas reportedly refused and subsequently assaulted a police officer.

 

At the time, the said police officers did not know about the assault Jonas was involved in earlier in the day.

 

A week before his arrest, Jonas returned from Ukraine where he won a gold medal in the 63kg category at the International Manger Memorial Tournament.
