Police have initiated enquiries into two videos circulating via social media showing anti-social conduct and what appear to be crimes of violence.

A spokesman said today: “Detectives are working to identify the subjects involved and encourage the public’s assistance in coming forward to identify those involved and providing any other information that can assist them in the investigation.”

The videos, showing young motorcyclists riding through several areas in Somerset, before they ride up on another young man standing on the roadside, during the early morning hours. An argument ensued and the young man was attacked. Police have not stated whether or not the man attacked has come forward to assist with the investigation at this point in time.

Persons who can assist police with enquiries are urged to contact Detective Sergeant Antoine Fox on 295-0011 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
