Five teenagers filed a report with the police after images appeared online showing how a group of young people are performing group abuse. Police say Thursday that the images have caused horror and concern in Gorinchem.
The police speak of "a number of videos", one of which ended up with the police last week.
"A group of boys almost attack a young boy in a team and abuse him in a brutal way," the police said. This minor has since made a declaration. The images show how the group works against the ground and is then beaten and kicked on the body and head.
"The incident turned out not to be isolated: we now have five reports pending that seem to have a link with this offender group," the police continue. The victims are around fourteen years old. Images of these other assaults have also appeared online.
A large number of the suspects have been identified, arrests will follow.
