A worker was kicked in the leg while trying to remove a portaloo from the Octagon anti-mandate protest in Dunedin yesterday. 

Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond, of Dunedin, said the worker went to uplift the toilet at 8am after the contract was cancelled. 

A female protester did not want it removed and started to abuse the worker. 

A young boy then came out and kicked the worker in the leg before retreating back into a tent. 

Police are still investigating and are yet to speak to the boy or the protester.
