A police officer is under review after being filmed kicking and punching a 15-year-old for resisting stop and search.
In footage taken by an eye witness, the cop appears to be grappling with the teenager moments after restraining him in Birmingham.
He then seemingly floors him with a hit to the head and a kick on his body.
West Midlands Police said the teenager was “seen acting suspiciously”, refused to co-operate and “is alleged to have elbowed the officer in the face”.
A socked witness said the kick was “totally uncalled for and unnecessary”.
