Two South Australian police officers have been placed on administrative duty and an investigation has been launched after video was posted to Facebook showing an Indigenous man being held to the ground and hit several times by officers on Monday night, footage the state’s premier said was “concerning”.

The incident occurred about 8pm in the inner northern Adelaide suburb of Kilburn.

In one of the three short clips, a police officer can be seen holding the head of the 28-year-old man against a concrete ledge and appears to shove his head back down when he tries to move.

Onlookers can be heard yelling “let his head up” and “get off his head”.
