(CNN)A Canadian legislator is calling for an investigation and a community is asking for answers after video showed a Montreal police officer kneeing on the neck of a Black 14-year-old, according to CNN news partner CBC.

Frantz Benjamin, a member of the National Assembly of Quebec, said several constituents called him and told him the video evokes "collective trauma," reminding them of George Floyd's death with the knee of a Minneapolis police officer on his neck, CBC reported.

At the start of the video, two officers can be seen kneeling on the suspect, one with his knee on the teenager's lower back and the other with his knee on his neck and face, CBC reported.

When police found the repellent, the second teen appeared to panic, reached for something in his bag and pushed officers away, Shane told CBC.
