A teenage boy who assaulted a cameraman outside a Sydney court where the young man accused of killing Thomas Kelly was appearing has also been charged with hindering the investigation into Mr Kelly's murder.

The 18-year-old was arrested on Tuesday and charged with a number of offences, including providing false information to police.

Mr Kelly, 18, died from serious head injuries two days after he was allegedly king hit by 18-year-old Kieran Loveridge in July last year while out with his girlfriend in Kings Cross.

Loveridge is still before the courts, charged with Mr Kelly's murder.

The young man arrested on Tuesday was charged with intending to pervert the course of justice, hindering an investigation, common assault and stealing.

Police allege he was involved in an assault on another man in Kings Cross on the same night as Mr Kelly was killed, and also stole an item from a fast food outlet.

He has been granted conditional bail to appear at Bidura Children's Court on March 26.

A senior police source confirmed to AAP that he is the same teenager who pleaded guilty last July to assaulting Nine Network cameraman Mario Conti.

Days earlier, Mr Conti's head slammed into the footpath after the boy charged him outside Burwood Local Court.

The boy, from Seven Hills, was at the court for an appearance of Loveridge.

He cannot be named for legal reasons because he was 17 at the time the two incidents.

Mr Conti was treated at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and released.
