Video of attack on old man goes viral
A VIDEO clip of two people who appear to be attacking an elderly man on a Dundee street has gone viral.
A man and a woman are recorded chasing the apparent victim, with the male attacker struggling with him on the ground while the female looks on.
The incident happened on the Hilltown, next to the TSB, just before 9pm on Saturday.
The clip has been viewed more than 30,000 times and shared nearly 1,000 times.
A witness saw the duo “batter” the man, whose shopping was “all over the road”.
Police were called to the area after reports of a mass brawl but did not make any arrests. A police spokesman said: “We had a call at 8.50pm with reports of a group of males fighting outside a bakery on the Hilltown.
“The reports said 10 people were fighting. A second phone call related to the incident reported two males fighting not far from the area. However, nobody wished to make any complaint and there were no arrests.”
Bruce Harper, who posted the video online, said that it was his aunt who witnessed the disturbance.
He said: “There were two people pestering an old man, shouting and swearing at him. They swore at him and then started hitting him.”
