Two men have been charged following heightened gang-related tensions in West Bay.
The 24-year-old and 39-year-old men from West Bay were arrested last week after a man was severely beaten on Birch Tree Hill Road. They were scheduled to appear in court Monday (7 November) facing charges of assault causing actual bodily harm.
That incident was one of several that week, including a shooting that left two hospitalised, all thought to be gang-related. Police have been dealing with a crime spike of what they believe to be heightened gang tensions, after investigating various shootings, beatings etc.
