We’re still trying to establish the details around this incident, and it is unclear what led to such a violent exchange. The clip shows the boy struggling to get back to his feet, after he was booted heavily by the suspect. Those filming the incident vow to ‘expose’ the senior party.
We’ve also been told that a complaint has been registered by the police, and an investigation is now pending. The shock footage has since gone viral online, with an overwhelming majority expressing their solidarity for the beaten youngster.
