The mother of a 15-year-old boy is filing a complaint to the RCMP after watching a video of her son allegedly getting punched in the head by an officer during an arrest at the Melfort Fair in Saskatchewan.

APTN News was sent a copy of a video, which appears to show an officer walking over to the teen, who’s lying on the ground underneath a set of bleachers, before swinging at his head twice.

On Monday, RCMP released a statement saying the 15-year-old boy from Tisdale, Sask. was arrested at the Melfort Fair on July 20 for wielding a fake firearm.

The teen cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
