The victim, in his late teens, was riding along the road when he was targeted by the group. He suffered multiple bruises after being pulled from his bike and repeatedly struck while on the ground. His bike and mobile phone were damaged during the incident.

A member of the public stepped in to help and was also assaulted.

  1. All the time there is not a visible police presence, these feral gangs will go about their cowardly business. Even when apprehended, the slap on the wrist ‘punishment’ is no deterrent to them. It will only get worse unless a politician with balls sorts it out. WE NEED MORE VISIBLE POLICE .

  2. This is the fall out from having less police on the streets. The thugish behaviour by feral youth is apparent all over Thanet, with violence, yobish foul mouths and down-right no cares for what they do because they think they can get away with anything, and most of the time they do because people don’t want to step in and get involved and the police is nowhere to be seen. They don’t even come quickly when called, by which time the incident is hours old. There are ferals riding off-road motorbikes and Quads on the roads around Thanet without crash helmets or licences. Things are gradually worsening and without a greater police presence on the streets it will just descend into mayhem.
    We have been asking for police back on the streets with powers to deal with whatever incident they find for years. Under this Tory government we were promised more police but instead they did the opposite. Politics is all about corruption in the 21’st century.

  3. We pay taxes for a reason, and most of those committing local crimes have never done a day’s work in their lives. Get the guilty parties caught and put them on the streets clearing rubbish, dog mess, cutting grass, clearing drains etc, let’s face it the local councils are struggling with these tasks.

  4. If the young fellow had tried to defend himself, he would have had the police, MI5, MI6, CIA, KGB etc breathing down his neck. “The law is an ass” – Agatha Christie in ‘Witness For The Prosecution’.
