Blade-runner Oscar Pistorius walks into police station for community service

News Agencies | Updated on: 14 November 2015, 16:23 IST

Oscar Pistorius has walked into a South African police station to report for community service, the first public sighting of the double-amputee athlete since he was released from jail in secret last month and moved to house arrest.

Pistorius was wearing a black baseball cap and sunglasses when he arrived this morning at the Garsfontein police station in the South African capital, Pretoria.

In a video clip published by South African media, a woman says "Hi Oscar, how are you?" as Pistorius walks past a small group of journalists outside the station. Pistorius does not reply.

Pistorius is serving a five-year sentence for shooting to death girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

He was released from jail on October 19 to serve the remaining four years of the sentence under house arrest.
