Video of the incident was captured by a bystander and appears to show the boy being surrounded and questioned by the three officers, one of whom appears to strike him.

The officer alleged to have committed the assault is Benjamin David Chivers. He is no longer a member of the police force.
In a statement on Monday, NSW Police said officers attached to Richmond Police District commenced an extensive review regarding an alleged assault in Casino involving a then 39-year-old senior constable and a 17-year-old teenage boy, in September 2019.
About 5.30pm on Sunday, police issued Mr Chivers, now aged 40, with a court attendance notice for the offence of common assault. He is due to face Lismore Local Court on March 22.
The charge comes after the teenager, represented by solicitor Joe Fahey from Foott Law, began legal proceedings against the state of NSW last year seeking damages for alleged assault, battery, false imprisonment and trespass to property.
Mr Fahey claimed in June that, when the teenager and his relative went to the Casino police station to make a complaint on the night of the alleged assault, police locked the doors and refused to let them in.
On Monday, he said the family welcomes that the appropriate actions have been taken by the police.
The civil matter remains before the courts.
