Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

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.”
