KIRKLAND, Wash. — The YMCA of Greater Seattle is responding after they say officers used force when detaining a teen boy.
The incident happened at the Kirkland location on Sept. 5.
Kirkland officers received a call about a theft in the area and the YMCA said the suspect reportedly went into the teen center.
Officials with the organization said two officers entered the facility to detain a 14-year-old boy.
The YMCA of Greater Seattle said the incident was caught on surveillance cameras.
The video shows the teen being pulled through a doorway but it doesn't show the moments before he was brought out. The YMCA told KIRO 7 there was a physical confrontation that started in a hallway that didn't have cameras.
Their cameras do not record audio.
“The Y is calling for disciplinary action and improved protocols in the future to ensure safety and respect for all,” said the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
