Handheld footage has captured the moment a teenage boy suffered leg injuries and was pinned to the ground during a dramatic arrest on a train station platform.

The video filmed at Gosford train station on the New South Wales Central Coast about 8.35pm on Saturday night showed an officer using his left leg to trip the 16-year-old and pull him to the ground.

One policeman could be heard telling the boy to ‘stay down’ as he tried to break free using his hands during a brief struggle.

Police allege the teenager had jumped down onto the tracks and then refused to move to on when officers told him to do so.

The friend who shared the video to TikTok on Monday morning claimed the arrest left his mate with a broken foot, a bruised wrist and a busted ankle.

A separate clip showed the boy’s friends being told repeatedly to move on by police outside the station – ending with one officer accusing them angrily of trying to film her breasts.

‘I’ve told you my name three or four times. You have it on recording – now leave,’ she added.

‘You’re not filming my breasts,’ she told one of the group when he asked her to move her jacket so he could film her name plate.

‘I’m not filming your breasts. I’m filming your f***ing name tag,’ the man replied.

The first video showed an officer pulling a bottle of what appeared to be alcohol out of a backpack during the arrest. 

A NSW Police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia officers from the state’s Police Transport Command were called to the station after reports a group of teenagers were attempting to access the railway lines.+3

‘Whilst interacting with the group, a 16-year-old male refused to comply with a police direction,’ the spokeswoman said.

‘He was issued with an infringement notice for the offence of go onto or into or remain on or in running lines.

‘The remainder of the group were all issued move on directions. It’s alleged the group continued to refuse police direction and verbally abused officers for a period of time.’+3

Police said the group finally moved on about two hours later.

Trespassing on railway tracks carries a fine of up to $5,500.

Refusing to comply with a police direction when told to move on following such an offence is punishable by an additional fine of up to $550.

The account that posted the footage further baited the police in the comments of the video, mocking a user who asked him to share footage of the entire altercation.

‘Who let the dogs out,’ the friend wrote.
