According to a family source, the team of RSS and local law enforcement officers knocked on the door of the residence.
As soon as the door was opened, Thompson was ordered to give his three or four-month old baby that he was holding in his hand to his girlfriend.
“As soon as the baby was handed over, the officers set upon him and beat him to the ground,” the source said.
It is said the house was searched but nothing taken.
