Police said they are aware of a second video circulating via social media showing another assault in the Court Street area, and confirmed that one man has been arrested and inquiries regarding both incidents continue.

Acting Detective Chief Inspector Dave Greenidge said, “Police have now been made aware of a second video circulating via social media showing another assault in the Court Street, Pembroke area and are actively seeking the suspects involved in both videos.

“Members of the public should be assured that these incidents are being taken seriously and the anti-social behaviour displayed will not be tolerated.

“Anyone committing offences in such videos can expect to be arrested and placed before the courts in due course.

“So far, one man has been arrested and inquiries regarding both incidents continue – with a reminder not to further circulate the videos, as such actions may compromise any potential court proceedings.

“Anyone with relevant information regarding these assaults is urged to contact the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or the confidential and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.”

    It is so shameful that young men can not do there hired job because of lazy, ignorant and badly rised punks!!!
    Their pix should be plastered all over the media outlets so they can be shamed!!!
    *^#? Vexes me!!!!

    • You're not serious says:

      Unfortunately too many of their peers think this is funny or a honorable act. It is really sad how these BOYS continue to be exactly what the world thinks they are.. Hopefully one day they’ll get the point and GROW UP

    Ah, Court Street… Let us all go there and embrace brotherly love.

    Government and Corporation do not need to do a damn thing in North Hamilton. The residents and property owners have to make a stand against this s@#t. If they do they will see their property values, their profits and their quality of life increase. Stop turning a blind eye and shunning the police, you people have a gold mine in back of town but everyone is afraid to go there fix it and we will come.

    • Ashamed says:

      “You people” dont be so quick to lump a community as ccomplex as the residents of it!!!!
      Not everyone living in the neighbourhood condones what this idiots do!!!!
      There are honest law abiding people who have reported crimes in this area, yet drug traffic, beatings, shootings and murders still happen.
      This area has been crime rudden for decades yet such activity has not been stumped out?
      Along with these thugs behaviour let us question more why as a country we have accepted, “oh that’s what happens on Court St!”

      • wahoo says:

        Sorry to have said “you people”, not sure why you highlighted it but sorry. You never said whether you are a resident. If their is something that the country can do please let us know.

  3. Oh,I see now says:

    One man arrested!??Headline should read,”One disgusting,lazy,SOB arrested.”

  4. Oh,I see now says:

    If this is circulating via social media how can the family of these pariah turn a blind eye?

  5. smh says:

    Most people who hang around court street are “low life scum!!”

  6. Unus sed leo says:

    How praytell…would showing the video…prevent or hinder the court case?
    This makes no sense.
    No…makes no sense at all.

  7. know your history says:

    Agree with Wahoo…Court street is a very cultural places in places like Cuba and the rest of the Caribbean it is a tourist hot spot. Kick those thugs out and take it back! Also BPS very much appreciated and hopefully you arrest the other one as well and lock both of them up for good! Young men learn from this stupid mistake and do better with your lives, cause we all know where that type of life takes you and thats jail forever or underground forever. Wake up and those others are not your friends.

  8. Realist says:

    I’ll continue to say we need too SEE a police presence actively, daily, nightly and always on Court Street. These men behave this way as they have no fear of the law. If we want to arrest this then we need a tougher approach with visible law enforcement. Calling for help after the criminal activity is useless. Get out there Bermuda police! Reconfigure your management practices.
