The father of an Indigenous teenager who had his legs kicked out from beneath him while being arrested in Sydney is waiting for the police officer to be punished.

Footage of the 16-year-old boy’s scuffle with police was shared via social media last month after he was arrested at Ward Park in Surry Hills.
