Video emerges of cop throwing man headfirst into the ground in Melbourne

A Melbourne man who was flung headfirst to the ground by a police officer who approached him from behind amid a high-intensity anti-protest operation was “calling for his mum” when he woke up from being unconscious, according to a “distressed” witness.

Shocking footage has emerged of an officer walking up behind the man standing in Flinders Street Station yesterday, before violently slamming him headfirst into the ground.

The video — which police say they are investigating — is being spread widely on social media and was filmed during widespread unrest in the city.

The victim appears to be standing in the station, calmly talking to several other police officers, when the officer approaches from behind.

The officer grabs the man by the shoulders and throws him to the ground in a swinging motion.
