Houston police announced that the officer who was caught punching a handcuffed suspect has been indefinitely suspended.

SkyEye 13 HD captured the exclusive video of the incident last month. It shows Officer Angela Horton walking up to the 16-year-old robbery suspect and punch him in the face.

HPD Internal Affairs investigated the incident and Thursday officials announced her indefinite suspension.

She has 10 days to appeal the decision.
