Quebec City police say they are investigating a violent arrest involving Black teenagers after the video surfaced online Saturday night.
A press release from the Quebec City police said authorities were “deeply concerned” about the officers’ conduct and were investigating the incident.
Police did not provide further details about the interactions or identities of those involved in the video.
However, professional boxer Eric Martel-Bahoeli said he recognized one of the young black men in the video.
Martel-Bahoeli said police had no excuse for such behavior and the arrest only added fuel to racial tensions between police officers and the Black community.
More will come.
