Video from Buffalo, New York was posted online on Thursday after a large group of police confronted a lone protester — and then violently shoved him.

“Shortly after Buffalo’s curfew started, city police and State Police swept through the area of Niagara Square directly in front of City Hall to clear the area where a protest was finishing. An unidentified, older man was hit shoved by two officers in the line. The man lost his balance and fell to the pavement, audibly hitting his head with blood running out from under his head,” WBFO-TV reports.

“We had a crew on the scene and after seeing video he clearly was pushed and stumbled backwards,” Russo reported.
