Viral social media video leads to three teen arrests and charges for violent attack in Gibraltar

Gib Police Station

POLICE arrested and charged three juveniles for allegedly attacking another child in Gibraltar after a video of the attack went viral on the Rock.

Prosecutors charged two boys, both aged 13 and one girl of 14-years-old with affray at New Mole House police station.

Police charged the children after investigating the attack that shows up in a video circulating on social media, they said in a statement.

The affray happened in Wellington Front, a recently refurbished area of the fortifications where a lot of children hang out at night.

“The Royal Gibraltar Police are aware of a video circulating on social media in relation to this incident and remind members of the public not to share it,” the statement read.

It follows a spate of different police investigations for online abuse.

In one such incident on Wednesday, a local juvenile reported that an unknown male had sent him a threatening message on Snapchat.
