Blonde influencer and her black boyfriend 'mistakenly' arrested

Blonde influencer and her black boyfriend ‘are pepper-sprayed and arrested by officers hunting a brunette woman and a white man over a car theft’ despite being stood roadside as the car drove past them

  • Kaana Grace shared footage of her boyfriend being arrested by Essex Police
  • She said they had been innocently walking down the road when police came
  • Police allegedly said the couple matched the identity of the suspects
  • He was later released but Kaana said they were ‘ashamed and upset’ 

A fashion blogger said she and her black boyfriend were wrongfully arrested by police even though they had been chasing other suspects with completely different appearances.

Kaana Grace, who has 60,000 followers on Instagram, shared footage of her boyfriend being pinned on the floor by a number of officers.

Speaking to the camera, she tearfully explained how police were chasing a suspected stolen car when they instead turned on the couple, even though they were after a white man and a brunette woman.

Kaana said in the caption: ‘Today me and my boyfriend had just stepped out of the house to go to the shop. We saw a black car speeding down the high road with police and vans chasing the vehicle.

‘It could’ve killed people. It was swerving busy traffic and even I had to run across the road as they nearly drove over me and my boyfriend on the pavement.

‘All of a sudden two police cars had unexpectedly pulled up and they hopped out and grabbed my and my boyfriend and spraying us with pepper spray and arrested us without telling us why.

‘Later on they told us we were arrested for suspicion of a stolen vehicle, even though he was among a crowd watching the craziness.’

The blogger and influencer (pictured) said they matched the police’s descriptions of a white man and a brunette woman

She continued: ‘They said we match the description of a brunette woman and a white man, which we clearly are not.

‘We were just standing on the sidewalk. We were ‘mistaken identities’… We are so ashamed and upset we had to go through this.

‘Also to mention we did not resist arrest even though we were innocent. We were just so confused and shouting we have done nothing wrong. 

‘How could we have stolen the vehicle if it was STILL being chased actively by police with the criminals inside and we were just standing near a flower shop??? They later de-arrested us and just left saying they got the wrong people.’ 

A crowd of onlookers also appears to be defending the man as he pleaded his innocence to the officers
