According to Surrey RCMP, three men were deported from Canada after investigations into two videos which show gangs of young men vandalizing vehicles and assaulting people. 

Videos show large groups of young men attacking people and hitting a vehicle with weapons and projectiles. According to police, over 50 people were investigated in the two incidents. 

In one video, the group can be heard yelling and pulling a man out of his vehicle before beating him. 

Another video depicts a large mob of young men violently kicking and beating another man who is on the ground before fleeing the scene. 

The attacks come at a time when Surrey has been facing a spike in gang violence. The city is on track to see a total of 17 homicides in 2019, the highest quantity in the last five years.

“Certainly I think this is the worst in terms of gangs that are shooting each other… A lot of the past was centred around Newton but now it’s starting to spread throughout Surrey, so people feel very, very unsafe in the community because a lot of these have happened in broad daylight,” said the city’s mayor, Doug McCallum. 

Canadian border officials are currently reviewing the status of another three suspects and whether or not they should be deported. 

Both incidents took place several months prior to the deportations.
