Police taser a man dangling from a first floor window

Police have been accused of putting a suspect in danger by tasering him as he dangles out of a first floor window.

In footage obtained by MailOnline, the hooded man is heard screaming the moment he is hit by volts from the stun gun in South Wales.

Incredibly, he manages to the pull himself back into the house which was then stormed by police.

Neighbours said if he had fallen to the ground the suspect could have suffered serious injuries.

The Police Action Centre, which campaigns for greater police accountability, described the deployment of the taser as 'grossly dangerous.'

The drama unfolded earlier this year when police responded to a 999 call after a 27-year-old man allegedly threw boiling water over his girlfriend and two of her friends.

Police arrived to be confronted by the man who they feared had reboiled the kettle ready to be used as a weapon.

An officer tells him to put the kettle down but water is allegedly thrown towards the policeman.

The suspect is seen running back inside the semi-detached house in South Wales and locking the door behind him.

Close-ups from the video show objects being thrown at the officers.

Businessman Taz Khan, 29, who filmed the incident said: 'The police surrounded the house and I think some of them must have entered by the back door.

'The fellow's only escape route was through the front window where there was a policeman waiting.

'He must have thought he was Tarzan or something because it was quite a drop onto the ground.

'I was amazed when the officer fired a taser at the man while he was dangling out the window.

'You can hear him yelp as the officer fires the taser but somehow he manages to pull himself back through the window.'

The suspect is dragged from the house moments later by two police officers.

Mr Khan, who lives in an neighbouring property, said: 'I felt sorry for the policeman underneath the window.
